Deferment is offered on a case-by-case basis.  Please contact your counselor immediately if you want to defer.

You will receive an email from your counselor with deferment paperwork.  Please complete the form and submit it immediately along with a personal statement detailing your reason for deferment.  Once we receive your paperwork, we will submit it to the department for approval.  It can take 1-2 weeks for a decision to be made on a deferment request. You will be notified you via email of the decision.

A student must submit a deposit for the current year and then an additional deposit to hold their seat for the following year.
