Enrollment Deferral

We understand that unforeseen circumstances may delay a student’s enrollment to Goddard College. Applicants who have been offered admission to Goddard College may request to defer their enrollment for up to two terms (one year).

Students who are approved to defer their enrollment and who satisfy the requirements listed here do not have to file a new application and are guaranteed admission for the new enrollment term.

Students approved to defer their enrollment for one year and who received a financial aid package with their original offer of admission can expect that Goddard College grants (i.e. Friend of Goddard Grant, Engaged Artist Award, and Partnership Grant) will also be deferred and received in full as originally offered. Deferred students pay a tuition deposit for the original term of entry, which will be credited to the new term of entry.

Deferred students are then considered admitted students for the new term of entry. They are expected to re-confirm their intention to enroll by the Priority Application Deadline for the new entry term. Requirements for the Deferred Enrollment Program:
