How do I apply for a deferral and when will I be notified of a decision?

If you have been officially accepted into one the USU degree Programs and would like a deferral, please contact the Graduate Education Office ( and your Program/Department for a decision on your deferral request. Please note that not all Programs/Departments allow deferrals. We recommend you talk over your decision to defer admission with the Program/Department prior to making a final decision. If the Program/Department approves your deferral, you will receive confirmation from the USU Graduate Education Office.
