Only students admitted for the fall semester can defer their admission. These students have the option to defer their admission for up to one year for entry in the spring or the following fall semester. If more than one year has passed since the student was admitted, he/she must reapply.

If a student qualifies and wishes to defer enrollment, he/she must submit a $500 enrollment deposit and request a deferral in writing to the Office of Undergraduate Admission via email to admission@miami.edu by the enrollment reply deadline of May 1.

Please note: An additional deposit of $500 is required if a deferral is granted. Students who are granted a deferral are required to reconfirm with the Office of Undergraduate Admission by January 15 for entry in the fall semester and November 1 for entry in the spring semester.

The following student populations may not defer admission:
  • Students admitted into the Frost School of Music
  • Conditionally admitted IEP students
  • Students admitted for the spring term
  • Transfer students
  • Students admitted from the waitlist
