International Application Deferrals

A deferral of admission is moving a confirmed (C1 Confirmation paid) seat in a specific program for a specific term to the same program in a future term.

Deferrals of admission are only considered on a case-by-case basis for compelling circumstances and must be approved by the International Centre.

Compelling circumstances must be validated with official documentation and are outside the student’s control. Examples include:

  • illness
  • court appearances
    bereavement
  • significant extenuating personal circumstances

Study permit processing delays may be considered in some cases. Supporting documents and proof of study permit application submission are required for consideration.

Financial constraints and changes in personal plans are not considered extenuating circumstances.

*Deferrals requests submitted after the deadline will only be considered on a case-by-case basis, and are not guaranteed.

If you wish to pursue a deferral, please complete an admission deferral request and upload documentation to support your case.

Students accepted to Academic UpgradingEnglish Language Foundations and Open Studies cannot request a deferral as they are non-credential programs. You may be eligible to move your application once to a different open intake. Submit your request before your program start date.

Admission deferral request

If your admission deferral is approved, a $250 administration fee will be deducted from the tuition deposit — the remaining balance can be used for the deferred term. If you then cancel your deferred application, the deposit will not be refunded and will be forfeited.

You can only defer your application once. If you choose to defer a second time, you must pay an additional non-refundable tuition deposit for that application.

If your admission deferral is declined and you decide to cancel your current application, your tuition deposit will not be refunded and will be forfeited. Review tuition and fees for our refund policy.
