Graduate Admission Deferments

A student's acceptance is granted for the semester and the particular program specified in the official acceptance notification. The student must validate the acceptance by enrolling for that semester. Students who fail to validate their admission must contact their program directly and request a Deferment of Admission. This request must be made in writing within 12 months of the initial requested entry date. If a request for deferment of admission is not received within 12 months, a new application and fee must be submitted. Deferment requests must also be received no later than the program or University application deadline for the semester desired, whichever is earlier. Students who were admitted provisionally upon receipt of official test scores and/or transcripts must supply those missing items prior to having their deferment decision processed by the Office of Admissions.
