Returning students

If you've been away from Wayne State University for an extended period of time, you may find yourself unable to register for classes. In order to quickly reactivate your academic record, you may need to provide us with updated information. Please complete and return the Returning Student Record Update form and submit it to the records and registration office via the Student Service Center. You may also email it to us at   

In researching your record, we will apprise you of any holds that we find and advise you on how to clear them up. In some cases, this may involve visiting or calling other offices on campus. Returning students are encouraged to contact Amber Neher (, the advisor for Adult Learners, for guidance on the journey back to Wayne State and to get connected with valuable resources.

Once you send in your Returning Student Record Update form, you should also make an appointment with an advisor. An advisor can help you figure out a plan for finishing your degree and help you make the best of your time at Wayne State. For more information about scheduling an advising appointment, please see
