A reactivate is an applicant that submitted an application last year and who is reapplying for admission this year. If you started an application last year but never submitted you are not considered a reactivate. Either way we would suggest that you create a new account with a different email address to start a fresh new application.
Applicants who applied the previous year may reapply the following year for admission. Reactivated applicants must complete the electronic application. You should create a new account in CollegeNET using a different e-mail address than last year. You will be required to upload a scanned version of your unofficial transcript that you have obtained from your college or university, a revised statement of academic purpose, updated resume/curriculum vitae, and if required a new writing sample, portfolio, or music sample. In addition, you will need to register two new recommenders to write letters of recommendation. Applicants who are reactivating are required to pay the application fee and submit their electronic application by the departments deadline.
Please note all applicants who applied the previous year will have their current and previous applications merged automatically upon submission of their new application. This is a Graduate School policy.
