While re-enrollment is not guaranteed, the Academics Team will recommend to the Graduate Division to re-enroll students who were in good academic standing at the time of withdrawal and whose coursework and new completion date fall within 7 years from the time they matriculated.
UC Berkeley campus policy places time limits on the use of courses for degrees; for the FTMBA Program, that limit is seven years. If you do not return and complete all degree requirements within seven years from the time you began the FTMBA Program, your only option for returning to Haas is through its regular admissions process. If you are admitted for a second time through the regular admissions process, you must start the program over from the beginning. None of the courses completed before your withdrawal will count toward your degree.
If your request to re-enroll falls within the seven-year window, email [email protected] at least 3 months before the start of the semester in which you plan to return so that you can begin the process of re-enrolling to the program. Due to capacity constraints, you may not be re-enrolled in the semester of your choice and referred to another semester to request re-enrollment.
If you have completed the core, you can return during the fall or spring semester. If you have not completed the core, you must return in the semester that corresponds with the core courses that you have not yet completed.
The Academics Team will provide a brief re-enrollment form and statement of legal residence document. Please fill out both and return them to the Academics Team at [email protected] for processing.
Please note that both Program Office and Graduate Division approval is required to re-enroll after an absence of one regular (Fall or Spring) semester or longer. If your request is approved, you will receive an email notification detailing the next steps to reactivate your student account.
As a reminder, you will be responsible for paying the tuition and fees as they are assessed for the semester that you return. In regards to adding classes, you will be eligible to participate in add/drop but not bidding. If degree requirements have changed while you are withdrawn, you may also be responsible for the new degree requirements.
