Access Periods/Time Tickets

Are you a returning student?

Returning students, sometimes referred to as former students or readmits, are students who have previously attended Texas State and want to return to campus to continue their studies after having been away for at least one long semester.

Undergraduate returning students must re-apply for admission. For guidance on how to re-apply, including deadlines visit the Undergraduate Admissions website.

If a graduate student does not enroll in a spring/fall term and it has been less than a year since last enrollment, the Update Application Form may be used to update registration; however, graduate students who have not enrolled for over a year must submit a new application and fee through ApplyTexas. For more information, please visit the Graduate College website.
