Deferring Your UW Enrollment

New students admitted to UW may choose to defer their enrollment for up to one academic year.  The process for officially deferring your enrollment is outlined below.  Students must complete their deferment prior to the first day of classes for which they were originally admitted.

Students who have previously been enrolled at UW should consult the admission policies for Returning Students.

Undergraduates - new freshmen or transfers:

  • Complete the online Defer Your Admissions form prior to the first day of classes for which you were originally admitted.
  • A student may only defer one time without the need to reapply.
  • Deferring your enrollment does not guarantee scholarships, aid and other opportunities which were may have been offered to you, as many of these offers are specific to students entering in the term for which you originally were admitted.  You must apply for these opportunities again based on your new entry term.
  • You are required to update the Admissions Office in writing regarding felony and/or behavioral suspensions which occurred since you last applied for admission.
  • You are required to provide final, official transcripts from any schools you attended since you last applied for admission.
  • Any enrollment deposit paid and not refunded prior to the published deadlines for the semester for which you were originally admitted will be forfeited.  You will be responsible for any new enrollment deposits required of you for your new entry term/semester.
  • Students who fail to defer their enrollment are asked to reapply for admission.
