Reactivation and Readmission


Applications and supporting documents are maintained for one year after the semester the applicant applied to begin the graduate program. Therefore, if an applicant has applied to Clark Atlanta University within the past year, his or her application can be reactivated by submitting a letter requesting reactivation of the admission file. The application fee is not required if the fee was submitted with the previous application.


If a currently enrolled graduate student desires to change from one degree program to another, he or she must submit a new application and three letters of recommendation. Additional test results are necessary only if the desired program has a different test requirement from the current program. The application fee is not required.


A Clark Atlanta University student who has not been enrolled for one semester (not including the summer) is required to apply for readmission. Applications must be submitted at least thirty (30) days before the first day of registration of the term for which readmission is sought. A former student who has attended another college or university during his or her absence from Clark Atlanta University must have an official transcript from each institution’s Office of the Registrar mailed to Clark Atlanta University, Office of Graduate Admissions.


Students who are enrolled at another university or college and wish to complete no more than twelve hours at Clark Atlanta University must submit an application, the application fee and a "Letter of Good Standing". Letters must list the desired course(s) and state that approval has been granted by a dean or an academic advisor. The document must also contain the dean or an academic advisor's signature.
