Request to Defer

If you’re an admitted first-year student and you’ve already made your deposit, you may be able to defer your admission for up to one year. First-year students may defer admission to complete religious, volunteer or military service or for unplanned medical circumstances. 

Admitted students will not be approved to defer their enrollment to attend another college or university or apply to another college or university while holding their space at Temple University.

Students interested in deferral must complete our brief deferred enrollment request form via TUportal and provide a final high school or college transcript. Please note that admitted transfer students are not eligible to request a deferral. If you are a transfer student who can not attend for the semester in which you have been admitted, you will need to re-apply for admission for a future semester.
