Deferral Policies
1. Deferred admission may only be granted to admitted undergraduate students who have paid the required $200 enrollment
deposit. Enrollment deposits are non-refundable to students who do not enroll for the approved deferral term. Enrollment
deposits will be credited to enrolled student accounts at the conclusion of Census Day for the approved deferral term.

2. Only one deferral will be approved per admitted student before need for reapplication for admission.
3. Merit scholarship awards and financial aid offers are forfeited upon deferral. Deferred students will automatically be
reconsidered for merit scholarship awards for the approved deferral term per scholarship guidelines in effect for that term.
Deferred students must reapply for financial aid for the approved deferral term. Scholarship offers and financial aid awards
are not guaranteed once a student has deferred enrollment.
4. Deferred admission does not apply to student housing. Students must reapply for student housing with the Residence Life
Office for their approved deferral term.

5. A letter re-confirming admission and a new student enrollment confirmation form will be mailed out to all deferred students
prior to the approved and anticipated enrollment term.
6. Students admitted from the Wait List are not eligible for deferral.
7. Enrollment at another college or university during the deferral period will disqualify a freshman student for deferred
admission. In this case, student would have to reapply for admission as a transfer applicant.
8. The Admissions Office reserves the right to ask for additional information and the right to deny the request for deferral.
