Defer enrollment until winter term?

<p>I am wondering is it possible to defer enrollment until the winter term? Has someone ever done that before? If so, where can I start? There's something suddenly just came up with my family and I might need to defer enrollment. Thanks in advance.</p>

<p>hmm. i couldn't really find the answer...just this on the faq page (<a href="http://www.wesleyan.edu/admission/applying/faq.html):%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.wesleyan.edu/admission/applying/faq.html):&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Is it possible to defer enrollment at Wesleyan for one year if I am admitted?</p>

<p>Yes. Deferred enrollment requests must be submitted in writing and approved by June 1st. Upon approval, Wesleyan will grant deferred admission for one year. Typically, 20 to 25 students are granted deferred matriculation in each class. In order to obtain approval, applicants must submit a plan for their “gap year.” Students granted a deferral cannot make any further admission applications to other institutions or enroll full time in any other institution of higher education. Interested students must also submit their Admitted Student YES Response Form and $250 admission deposit by May 1st. Once the student’s request for deferment is received and, if approved, a formal letter acknowledging their deferred status will be sent.</p>

<p>it seems like a pretty strict process, but i'd call. maybe you could send a letter explaining your extenuating circumstances or something.</p>

<p>I'm not sure if you could defer for just a semester or if it would have to be for an entire year, but I'd recommend contacting Wesleyan as soon as possible and explaining your situation, since the June 1st deadline has passed. </p>

<p>I hope it all works out!</p>

<p>THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! I think I should probably call. And I just have one more question. IF I am allowed to defer my enrollment till the winter term, do you think I would miss out a lot since I miss orientation and stuff (especially Im an international student). Thanks :)</p>

<p>The obvious answer is, yes, you will miss out on certain experiences, but it won't be the end of the world, and you'll find a way to make up for it. However, I would call and see if deferring your enrollment possible before you even start worrying about stuff like that--the sooner the better.</p>
