All students are expected to register during the announced registration periods specified by the university.

Admission Deferral

Guidelines for admission deferral.

1. Reasons which may not be accepted for deferral.

  • Employment reasons.

  • Travel/vacation/social plans.

  • Conflicts with a class at another school.

  • Medical problems which do not seriously interfere with the student’s ability to study.

2. Reasons which may be accepted for deferral.

  • Illness, a doctor's recommendation for deferral is required.

  • Accident, victim of criminal assault, mugging, robbery or serious traumatic events.

  • Delivery of a baby.

  • Unavoidable military commitment.

  • Other extraordinary circumstances as deemed appropriate by the Dean of Academic Affairs.

3. Important points:

  • Requests to defer admission must be made as soon as the student is aware of a potential scheduling problem, usually no later than the enrollment day of the first semester.

  • Deferral generally does not exceed one year, except delivery of a baby or unavoidable military commitment. Under the aforementioned circumstances, a maximum deferment period of two years may be granted.

  • A deferral needs to be approved by your Department head and Dean of the College; if it is not approved and you decide to re-apply for admission at any other time, you will need to go through all the application procedures and there is no guarantee that you will be accepted again.
