Students wishing to apply for deferral should make this request in a letter to the Dean, care of the UCVM Admissions Office within 15 days of the date at the top of their acceptance letter. Requests for deferred admission will only be considered from applicants who have accepted the offer of admission and paid the $500.00 acceptance fee. The applicant must clearly explain the reason for the deferral request. Deferrals will be considered for academic and/or non-academic reasons, including completion of degrees. Deferral requests for attending other veterinary schools will not be accepted. It is at the sole discretion of the Dean to grant or deny a deferral. Deferrals will normally be for one year only.
