Tuition Deposit Deferral Questions

  • In general, deferrals of tuition deposits are not granted. Categorical exceptions are made only for those applicants who provide sufficient documentation of their participation as an undergraduate student in an EOP, HEOP or SEEK program, or as an undergraduate participant in the CSTEP, MARC, PREP, RISE, LSAMP or McNair Scholars programs on any campus, or as an applicant through Project 1000.
  • An appeal for a deferral (not a waiver) of the application fee can be made by applicants who provide documentation of their receipt of an ADEA Financial Assistance Program [FAP] Fee Waiver.
  • In all other cases, a deferral (not a waiver) will be considered by the Office of Admissions only for cases of extreme financial hardship and then only with clear documentation from an appropriate official at an institution of higher education certifying the financial need.
  • Please note that self-declaration of need by an applicant or mere eligibility for student financial aid (loans) is not adequate justification. For more information, applicants should contact our DDS admissions office.
