A former student is one who was previously admitted into an undergraduate degree program at YSU, has not attended for three or more consecutive terms, and has not attended another accredited college since attending. Students meeting this criteria can complete an application for readmission via the Penguin Service Center. There is no application fee. Upon receipt of the application, former students will be contacted by mail or email regarding the status of readmission, as well as advisement and registration information.

Students may apply by using the YSU Readmission Request Form - Undergraduate Majors, Certificates and Tracks. The completed form may be submitted to the Penguin Service Center in-person or my mail, fax or email. 

If a student has attended another accredited college during their time away from YSU, the student should apply as a former transfer student through the  Office of Admissions; they can be reached at (330) 941-2000.
