Deferred Admission

Students admitted to the doctoral programs in Education or Physical Therapy or master’s programs in Business Administration, Forensic Science, Genetic Counseling, International Peace and Conflict Resolution, and Medical Science (Physician Assistant) who want to defer their admission for one year must submit their request to do so in writing to the program director. Deferrals will be granted by each department on an individual basis. Once the deferral is granted, students must submit the required deposit to reserve their seat in the class. This deposit will be credited toward tuition. Students who are granted a deferral must understand that they will be subject to the prevailing tuition when they join the program. If any conditions were assigned to the deferred admission, those conditions must be met in order to begin the program. Students in all other graduate programs are expected to notify the Office of Enrollment Management if they do not plan to begin coursework immediately after acceptance. This should be done in writing or via e-mail to
