To request an enrollment deferral for the MSW program, please refer to your Offer of Admission form, check “Defer” and select the intended term of entry. You may defer for up to one full academic year (two semesters). A tuition deposit(s) is required to hold your seat. Requests to defer are not guaranteed and subject to approval. Deferral to full time programs starting in Fall must be received on or before July 1. If you are unable to attend our MSW Program within one year, you must re-apply to the program. Any Silver scholarship awarded for the initial entry term will be forfeited and you will be reconsidered for the new term in which you enroll.

Exceptions to the deferral review process are granted to those participating in a national community service organization (Peace Corps, City Year, etc) or mandatory military service. Deferral for the 32-month pathway is not permitted. If you are a 32-month student and cannot attend, you must re-apply for the intended term of entry. If you have questions, please email
