Students may request a deferral of their initial semester of admission to the next semester for which the degree program is admitting students. Not all academic units offer deferrals, so please consult your academic unit prior to submitting a request. To request a deferral, open the Request Change link under the My Programs and Degree Progress box on My ASU. Requested changes have a nonrefundable $30 processing fee and are subject to approval by your academic unit. Only one deferral is allowed.
Canceling graduate admission
If you have not yet registered for classes for the term of your admission and would like to cancel your admission, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have registered for classes and wish to withdraw from the university, you will need to withdraw from your classes and fill out theVoluntary Withdrawal form. You may scan the form and email it to email@example.com, fax it to 480-965-5158, or bring it to the Graduate Admission Services office in the Student Services Building, room 112.
International students should also contact the International Students and Scholars Center before withdrawing from classes and submitting a Voluntary Withdrawal form, as it most likely will affect their visa status.
Once you have submitted your request, please allow 10 business days for removal from communication from ASU.
