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

If you are unable to arrive before January 11, 2021, you may be able to matriculate and begin your program remotely. Once you arrive in the U.S., no later than February 10, you may continue your studies remotely. However, as a first-year student you are required to take at least one hybrid course and attend the in-person component. Please communicate with your department or program as soon as possible if you cannot arrive on campus by January 11, 2021.

You may also defer your admission. Students in the School of Public Health may only defer their admission to Fall 2021. Students in all other master’s programs may defer to Spring 2021 or Fall 2021. If you would like to defer your admission, please contact your department administrator.

Please discuss your options, questions, and concerns directly with your graduate program before making a final decision.
