Gap Year and Deferment Requests

We understand that admission is not a one-size-fits-all process and that there are reasons first-year students may need to delay the start of their UConn education to up to a year from the admission term. Whether it be to pursue a unique travel opportunity, to serve in the military or public service, or due to chronic illness, simply submit the Gap Year/Deferment Request Form found in your applicant portal and share your plan with us. Your non-refundable enrollment fee is still required to secure your seat. Students may not enroll at another institution, professional certification program, or participate in a post-graduate year at a secondary school during the gap year/deferment period.

Transfer students are not eligible for a gap year/deferment request. If you are a transfer student who wishes to postpone admission, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at for next steps in the admission process.
