Re-Admission

Former VU students interrupting their educational program by not registering in any subsequent spring or fall semester must submit an Abbreviated Application to the Undergraduate Admissions Office. If the length of absence exceeds two consecutive semesters, the student will be required to meet any new graduation requirements which may be in effect at the time of re-admission. Students who have completed twenty-four (24) units at VU and have formerly declared a major, after being out of attendance for no more than two consecutive semesters, may return finding that the requirements have not changed.

Students at Large

A Student at Large is a non-degree seeking, part-time (limit 6 units per semester) student. Students at Large are not eligible for financial aid. Students at Large must submit an Abbreviated Application (with a $15.00 application fee) and an Add/Drop or Summer Registration form to the Undergraduate Admissions Office. The application and forms may be emailed to admissions@vanguard.edu or faxed to 714.966.5471.
