If you are considering to defer your enrollment, you can access our Deferral Response Form here. Accepted students can defer their offer of admission for up to one year. Charles River Campus, Off-Campus, and Worcester Hybrid Campus students can defer their admission until the next fall. For example, a student accepted for Fall 2021 can only defer their acceptance to Fall 2022.

Online Program students can defer their admission to either a fall, spring, or summer start date so long as they do not exceed one year of their original acceptance. For example, an online student accepted for Summer 2021 can defer their acceptance to Fall 2021, Spring 2022, or Summer 2022.
