Degree-seeking full- or part-time undergraduates whose studies are interrupted for a period of one or more fall or spring semesters, are required to submit an application for re-enrollment through the Dean’s Office of the college or school of their last enrollment. Students are encouraged to begin the re-enrollment process at least two months prior to the beginning of the semester or summer session in which they intend to re-enroll. Re-enrollment forms are available at Re-enrollment Form. Returning students who intend to apply for financial assistance are encouraged to submit all required documents by March 1.

Re-enrolling students who have registered at other college(s) after leaving Drake must provide official transcripts from all institutions attended. Students must request that a transcript bearing the official seal and signature of the official in charge of records be sent directly to Drake's Student Records Office by each college or university previously attended. Transcripts that have been in the student's possession are not considered official documents. Students are subject to the academic regulations and requirements in effect at the time of re-enrollment.
