Have you already applied? Were you admitted in a past semester?

If you've already applied or if you've been admitted in a past semester (within the past year) but you did not enroll, you can reactivate your application or admission by submitting a complete application update request. If you originally applied as a first-year student and you are now applying as a transfer student, please complete a new application and not the application update form.
