If I cannot arrive in the US, what are my deferral options?

We understand that, due to multiple delays and complications caused by COVID-19, a number of students may not be able to arrive on campus prior to the start of Spring 2022. If you are unable to arrive before January 26, 2022, but can expect to arrive in Providence by February 25, 2022, you may be able to matriculate and continue in-person once you arrive, with approval from your department or program. 

If you will not be able to arrive by February 24, 2022, please review your deferral options with your Director of Graduate Study (DGS). It may be necessary to defer until Fall 2022. The deadline for deferral requests was January 4, 2022. If you have any questions, please contact your Director of Graduate Study (DGS) in your program.
