Deferrals, application changes and readmissions

Defer your admittance

If you are offered a seat but can’t come, you can request a deferral before the tuition deadline. We will consider your application for the next term your program/campus choice is available. You can only defer an offer once, and any fees or deposits you’ve already paid are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Change your program choice

A change to your program choices requires the submission of a new application and fee. Submitting a new application cancels your previous application.

Any choice you want to carry over from your previous application must be listed on the new application. This is especially important if you have already been admitted or placed on a waitlist.

Request your choices in order of preference. This is the order in which they will be assessed.

If you only have one choice on your existing application, you can add a second choice without submitting a new application and fee.

Apply for readmission

If you were previously enrolled in a program, but didn’t complete all credits from the first term, you are required to submit a new application. For more information, please contact Admissions.
