COVID Related Change of Session for Admitted Students

  • Deferring a cohort or subgroup of a fall cohort: contact Nikole Morris for the link to the expedited deferral form to provide to your students.
  • Deferring students on a one-off basis: forward admitted students to Grad College (Andy Ray for International; Katie Tadlock for Domestic) with the following information:
    • Deferral Term (i.e., spring 2021, fall 2021);
    • If funded, confirm if funding offer defers with the student
    • Grad College will withdraw the current application and send deferral information to the student
  • International late arrival vs. deferral: contact Andy Ray
    • The campus report date is August 12; beyond is a late arrival that requires special handling
    • Sept. 28 is the cut-off date to meet the federal immigration reporting deadline
  • For admitted students who have not yet documented enough funding for a Certificate of Eligibility (I-20, DS-2019) – if you are offering any funding or additional funding to a current offer, notify the Graduate College ASAP so that we can advise the student about changes to their personal funding guarantee requirement.
