Deferring Your Admission

  • If you would like to defer your admission to a future term, you will need to fill out the Declaration of Intent. This will serve as your official request to defer.
  • If you have already paid your tuition deposit, it will be held to serve as the deposit for the term you are deferring to. If you withdraw from your new term before your new candidate reply date, you will be issued a refund of your tuition deposit.
  • If you have not already paid your tuition deposit, you will have until the candidate reply date of your new term to submit your deposit (see below for dates).
  • If you were approved for a tuition deposit fee waiver for your original term, the waiver will still apply to your new term.
