Readmission policy

If you're not enrolled in any Iowa MBA courses for three consecutive semesters—including a spring, summer, and fall (winter session doesn't count)—you'll need to apply for readmission. The readmission application is shorter than the typical app and carries a small fee.

How to apply for readmission: Apply through the Application Portal. Select "Readmission" in the admission type field.
