Deferring Your Admission

Students seeking to defer their admission and automatic scholarships can do so by submitting our deferment request form. Deferring allows you to delay your admission to a later starting semester than the one you were originally admitted.

Admissions deadlines for deferment requests:

Spring 2021 admits need to request a change by May 1, 2021

Fall/Summer 2021 admits need to request a change by December 1, 2021

Spring 2022 admits need to request a change by May 1, 2022

Deferment of Scholarships: In order to have your scholarship deferred with your admission, you will need to meet the deadlines listed above -AND- Boise State’s scholarship deadline for the semester you are moving your admission to.

Before beginning the deferment form, please note the following:

  1. If you are changing your degree-seeking status from non-degree to degree seeking, please do not use this form. Instead, complete a new application for admission.
  2. Moving your admission to a different semester will also cancel your on-campus housing application. If you have applied for housing, be sure to visit the Housing and Residence Life website to understand the fees associated with canceling your application.
  3. An approved deferment request only applies to student’s general admission to the university. Direct admission to academic majors, programs with advanced standing, or placement by exam or audition will be determined by the individual department/program. Applicants are advised to contact the department/program prior to requesting a deferment.
