Request a Deferral of Admission

An offer of admission to a Dalhousie program is made for a specific academic start term. If you are unable to attend for the term specified, you may be eligible to defer your acceptance to a future term (up to a maximum of one year from your original start term).

To request a deferral, please complete the form below. If you plan on taking secondary or post-secondary courses during this time please notify us so that we can adjust your application.

Once your request has been reviewed you will receive email notification informing you of the decision. If your deferral is approved, any current registration in Dalhousie courses will be removed as part of the deferral processing. As a result, you will need to re-register for courses when registration opens for your deferred admit term.

Students who have been offered a scholarship must check with the awards office to request a scholarship deferral. The awards office can be reached at awards@dal.ca
