Return from a Leave of Absence

We look forward to welcoming you as you return from your leave of absence. This page will guide you through the process, including the registration and housing information.

We recommend you contact the University at least 6 weeks prior to the start of the semester, if you have not already communicated your plans to return. This will allow ample time for you to work with the Registrar’s Office, Residence Life and Housing (RLH) and any other entities to ensure a smooth transition and a successful return.

First Step:
Notify the Registrar's Office that you are returning by emailing You will not be able to register online unless you notify the Registrar's Office of your return. 

Second Step:
After your record is reactivated in Self-Service, log in, and as you do, take note of your current academic advisor (who will need to approve you for registration) as well as any registration holds that may be on your account. Those will need to be addressed before you can register for the semester.

Third Step:
Complete the Return to Housing Form for Fall 2024 form on your MyRedlands Housing Portal under Applications and Forms by May 1 to communicate with Residence Life and Housing (RLH).
