Requesting a Deferral
A deferral is a postponement of your admission to York.
York University recognizes that after being newly admitted some applicants encounter unique personal circumstances that represent legitimate reasons for requesting a deferral of admission to the next academic session. Newly admitted first-year students for September entry may request a deferral through our Deferral Form. The University grants deferrals at its discretion, only in highly exceptional cases and on a restricted basis. All conditions must be satisfied before a deferral will be granted.
