York University recognizes that after accepting an offer of admission some applicants have legitimate reasons for requesting a deferral of their admission to allow them to start their studies at a later semester start date. Although some programs do not allow this, in most cases requesting a deferred entry is possible and quite straight-forward. The deferral request process ensures that all admission conditions are satisfied before a deferral is granted. Deferral requests may be granted for up to a maximum of one calendar year.
If you plan to complete any further studies at an accredited institution after accepting your offer of admission to York, you will have to reapply for admission to a future session and provide transcripts from the institution that you attend in order to be reconsidered for admission. This form is for requesting deferral only and cannot be used for making a reapplication.
