University of Calgary Calendar 2023-2024 Admissions A.4 General Admission Procedures A.4.5 Deferral of Admission
A.4.5 Deferral of Admission

Offers of admission are only valid for the term outlined in the admission letter. Students who are not registered in a course(s) after the course drop deadline for this term must re-apply for admission, unless they are approved for a deferral of admission.

Requests for deferral of admission may be submitted to the Associate Registrar, Information, Recruitment and Admissions through the Deferral of Undergraduate Admission Request form who will consult with the Faculty to which the student has been admitted. Deferrals are only approved for special circumstances and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Students who attend another post-secondary institution during the deferral period will have the deferral cancelled and must re-apply for admission. Requests to defer an offer of admission are not normally considered after the start of the admission term.

Students admitted to the Cumming School of Medicine (MD program), Veterinary Medicine, and Law see the faculty website for admission deferral information.
