Deferred Admission

Image of Alumni HallAlfred University understands that some students may benefit by postponing entrance for up to two years. Deferred admission applicants should:

  • Follow the application procedures for regular admission, including payment of the enrollment deposit.
  • Notify the Office of Admissions by August 1 of their intention to delay entering the University.
  • Notify the Office of Admissions in writing at least three months before planning to enroll.

Should the two-year deferment period lapse without written notification, the deposit will automatically be forfeited.

A deferral student who enrolls at another academic institution sacrifices the deposit and relinquishes his/her place in the freshman class. Such student may reapply as transfer students and, if accepted, will have the previous deposit applied toward first semester tuition charges. Those who are not accepted or who decide not to attend forfeit the deposit.
