Students should plan to enroll in the term for which they apply. However, admitted students who have deposited may submit a request to defer enrollment for a maximum of one semester with the permission of the Admissions Committee. Generally, requests are granted only for very compelling reasons. Reasons the Admissions Committee may consider include medical or family emergencies, or extraordinary opportunities. Students may only defer admission to the same program and modality. For example, a student who is admitted and deposited for the summer online immersion program may defer one semester and enroll in the fall online immersion program. This same student must reapply if they are interested in the fall on-campus program.

Deferral Deadlines

After the deadline has passed, students and parents/legal guardians are responsible for payment of the current semester.
