Economics Department’s Message to Admitted PhD Students

Given COVID-19, the Graduate School will grant a deferral of your admission to Fall 2021 if you accept your offer of admission but cannot come to Boston in Fall 2020 for visa and/or health reasons. The deadline for deferral requests is August 1, but we realize there may be unforeseen events that lead to a later request. We will work on alternative enrollment options if the need arises.
