Request to Defer

Admitted students who have deposited can seek to defer their admission for up to one year for reasons that do not include the completion of college-level credits elsewhere.  Typically, 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.
