The steps on this page apply to applicants and admitted undergraduate students before the semester of admission. Once a semester starts, and if you are enrolled in classes, you must withdraw formally from ASU in person.
If you are a domestic student, submit your deferment application no later than 30 days prior to the first day of class of the semester for which you were admitted.
If you are an international student, email email@example.com with your full name, ASU ID number and reason for your deferral request.
To defer your ASU scholarship awards, you will need to email at least one supporting document (e.g., military orders, notice of religious mission, confirmation of volunteer work, etc.) to firstname.lastname@example.org to certify your eligibility for scholarship deferment.
ASU is unable to defer any privately awarded scholarships. You must notify your private scholarship sponsor of your deferment request with ASU. Private scholarship deferment decisions will be made by the scholarship sponsor.
If you have not registered for classes
By submitting your request to defer your admission, you are also canceling any housing assignment and orientation appointment. Be aware that you will still be responsible for any nonrefundable housing charges or other university charges you might have incurred. You can view your account and pay any charges by signing in to My ASU.
If you have registered for classes
It is your responsibility to withdraw from classes. You must withdraw from all classes before the end of ASU’s refund period or you will be responsible for all tuition charges. By registering for classes, you agree to pay all applicable tuition and registration fees. You are not dropped from your classes due to nonpayment. Sign in to My ASU to withdraw from your classes.
You should request transcripts from every educational institution attended. Official transcripts must be mailed or sent electronically directly to Admission Services by the records office of the issuing institution. Transcripts delivered by hand will be accepted only if they are sealed in the original high school envelope. ASU does not accept transcripts transmitted by fax. High school transcripts must show GPA and date of graduation. ASU requires an English translation of all foreign-language transcripts.

If you are an international student who is deferring your admission, you must obtain a new I-20 and related visa documents for your new enrollment term.
