Gap Year and Deferment Requests
We understand that admission is not a one-size-fits-all process and that there are reasons a student 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 $300 non-refundable enrollment deposit is still required within two weeks of the date marked on your acceptance letter 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 firstname.lastname@example.org for next steps in the admission process.
