The Graduate Restart Program is intended to assist former University of Tennessee graduate students whose cumulative UT graduate grade point average (GPA) is below a 2.00 to re-enroll in a degree program or graduate certificate program without having to overcome the burden of previous unsatisfactory academic performance. To be eligible for the program, a period of at least 3 years (36 months) must have elapsed since the former student’s last enrollment. Students can apply to their previous graduate program, or a different graduate program under the Graduate Restart Program. This form is required as part of the application process for the Graduate Restart program.
- Fill out all fields on the form in the Student section.
- Adequately answer the three questions listed on this form as part of your Graduate Restart petition.
- Be certain to provide the NetID of either your Department Head or the Director of Graduate Studies for your program to co-sign your application.
- Sign the form where indicated and submit the form, so that it can be sent to your co-signer and to the Graduate School.
