McMaster will normally only grant deferrals on offers of admission when there are special extenuating circumstances. Each case is evaluated on its own merit.
A request for deferral (to the subsequent Fall term) will be considered under the following circumstances:
- the student has accepted their undergraduate offer of admission to the university; and
- all conditions outlined in the Offer of Admission letter have been met; and
- the student is not intending to return to secondary school or attend another post-secondary institution during the deferral period.
Requests should be submitted by September 1 of the application year, outlining the reasons for the request. Details on how to submit a Request for Deferral will be posted on this page in early July.
