If you are admitted but wish to take a year off before entering college, please submit a short statement to the Office of Admission by May 15 making your request and explaining your plans for the next year. If we approve your request, we grant deferment for one year. You must pay your tuition deposit by the applicant response date (May 1 for Regular Decision applicants) and may not apply to or enroll in another institution of higher education during that year.
