Once students have been admitted, they may defer their start date for up to a maximum of one (1) year from the date the application for admission was first approved.

Applicants can submit their deferral request by emailing [email protected]. The email should include the applicant’s student number and the term they wish to defer to.

Applicants may defer their commencement date up to a maximum of one (1) year from the issuance date on their initial offer letter. Applicants may defer more than once provided each deferral does not exceed this time frame. Applicants who do not commence as students within this time frame will have let their offer for admission expire. They will be required to submit a new application and will be subject to pay any and all associated fees. The University does not guarantee admission will be approved to any applicant who is required to submit a new application. The applicant may be required to provide additional proof of English-language proficiency before approving a request for deferral.

Deferral requests should be submitted by the deferral deadline of the term they wish to join.
