An applicant’s acceptance is granted for the semester and the particular program specified in the official acceptance notification. The applicant must validate that acceptance by enrolling for that semester. Applicants who fail to validate their admission may contact Admissions and request a Deferment of Admission. This request must be made in writing within 12 months of the initial requested entry date.  If a request for Deferment of Admission is not received in the specified time, a new application and fee must be submitted.  Deferment requests must also be received no later than the program or University application deadline for the semester desired, whichever is earlier. Applicants who were admitted provisionally upon receipt of official test scores and/or transcripts must supply those missing items prior to having their deferment decision processed by Admissions. International students must also provide a new financial statement dated no earlier than 6 months before the requested date of entry.
