The following deferral policy is applicable to some programs. Please check with your departmental advisor to see if this policy applies to you. Graduate program acceptance and matriculation is for the semester indicated in the student’s acceptance letter.

Students who do not enroll in the semester for which they are accepted forfeit their place in the program. Students who have forfeited acceptance into a program have up to one year to request that their acceptance be reinstated. However, granting this request remains at the discretion of the program and the Assistant Vice President for Graduate & Extended Learning. After that point, it will be necessary to reapply. Please email us at gradstudies@newpaltz.edu for more information.
