The Graduate School

Deferring Enrollment


The process to request a deferral is outlined below:

  1. Complete the deferral form (PDF) and have it considered by the Program Coordinator prior to the first day of classes for the semester originally accepted. Keep in mind that only accepted students may be considered for a deferral. Deferments may only be considered for up to one academic year and not all programs consider deferrals.
  2. Specific instructions will be sent from the Graduate School once an approved deferment has been received.
  3. Financial awards or scholarships do not carry over to the following year. Students must reapply to be considered for financial awards, scholarships, and financial aid.
