Some graduate programs allow for the deferral of admission; however, deferral of admission is not automatic. Certain departments may require a new application if the student does not enroll in the term originally designated. Please consult with your individual program office to determine whether they allow deferral requests.
Deferral of admission is limited to one request per admitted program.Back to Top
All deferral requests are subject to review and approval by both the department and the Graduate School.
If the deferral is denied or the deferred student cannot attend the graduate program for the approved term, they will have to submit a new application.Back to Top
