Everett Golson has applied for readmission to Notre Dame, coach Brian Kelly said Tuesday, according to the Chicago Tribune.
"That application process has been submitted from what I know of," Kelly said, according to the newspaper. "And decisions relative to admissions happen in middle of December."
Golson, formerly the starting quarterback for the Fighting Irish, was suspended in May for "poor academic judgment," according to a statement released by the player. In a later interview with Sports Illustrated, when asked directly whether he cheated on a test, Golson said: "Yeeeeeeeaaaahhh, something like that."
Golson is applying for readmission for the spring semester, which might allow him to practice with the team before a bowl game, the Tribune reported.
Golson started 11 of 13 games for the Fighting Irish in 2012 as a redshirt freshman, leading the team to the Discover BCS National Championship Game, where it lost to Alabama to finish a 12-1 season.
He completed 187 of 318 passes for 2,405 yards and 12 touchdowns with six interceptions. Golson also rushed for 298 yards and six scores.
Kelly previously said he and offensive coordinator Chuck Martin were regularly in touch with Golson, who has been training in San Diego under quarterback coach George Whitfield.
