Can I defer my acceptance until next year or later?

Applications: Undergrad (101) Categories: Offers of Admission

If you are admitted to a university but wish to delay your studies for a year or more, you will need to reach an agreement with the university in question. The university will determine any conditions.

When you are ready to attend university, you may be required to re-apply through the OUAC. Contact the university for more details. If you are required to apply through the OUAC, you will need to use the correct application, submit the appropriate application fee and respect any application deadlines. In addition to the program that you deferred, you may add other university or program choices to your new application; however, additional university or program selections beyond the initial three will require the payment of additional choice fees.

If you deferred your acceptance (and are not a current Ontario high school student in a day program), you must use the 105 application. You must also ensure that your official high school transcript is forwarded directly to the universities, if required.

Please note that the 105 application is subject to a different application fee and possible institution-specific supplemental/document evaluation fees.
