COM Deferment of Admissions

Deferment of Admissions

An offer of admission applies only to the specific academic year for which the applicant has applied. Applicants who are not able to attend the College of Osteopathic Medicine in the specific academic year to which they have applied and subsequently have been admitted, will need to reapply for admission. Consequently, a student who was admitted to one academic year but does not ultimately matriculate, may not necessarily be offered admission in another academic year.

Under certain circumstances, an applicant’s request for deferring admission may be considered on a case-by- case basis. Applicants seeking deferment must make such A request following admission in writing to the Office of Admissions. Applicants may be required to submit relevant documentation supporting their deferment request. These requests will be forwarded to and then reviewed by the Dean. Ultimately, these requests will be either granted or denied solely at the discretion of the Dean of the College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Applicants who have been granted deferment will not need to re-apply to CHSU and will be permitted to attend CHSU in the semester to which their admission has been deferred. Deferred applicants must continue to meet all CHSU requirements during the entirety of the deferment period. Prior to enrollment, deferred applicants will need to comply with all admission criteria that were in place at the time they were initially offered admission into the College of Osteopathic Medicine, and not the admission requirements that are in place at the time the applicant actually attends CHSU.
