Deferring Enrollment

In light of the current global pandemic, we know that many of our international students have had their plans to study at Crandall University impacted. As a result, Crandall University has modified our deferral policies for our international applicants.

Those who have been admitted for the January 2021 intake of a Graduate Program, but are unable to obtain a study permit or approval in principle (AIP) in time to begin have two options:

  • They may choose to begin their program online (if spaces are available and tuition is paid) before receiving their AIP.
  • They may choose to defer until the next semester (May 2021) intake by ensuring they have paid a minimum of $8,500 tuition deposit.

Undergraduate students whose program is not offered online will have a one-time opportunity to defer their application to the next academic year (Sept. 2021). A tuition deposit is preferred, but at this time not required for deferral of an undergraduate program.

The deferred applicant’s status will be re-instated, and no application fee will be requested. Fall 2021 applications are being processed for undergraduate programs beginning November 2, 2020.

Deferral Request Deadlines

Please note: Once a student has begun their program, they are only eligible to defer if their visa application has been rejected and they are choosing to reapply.

Deadline Dates

December 15, 2020

Students without AIP or Permits, but who have applied for their visa may enroll in online classes if spaces are available.

January 30, 2021

Graduate Students choosing to defer their offer to the May 2021 intake must do so by this date. Students must have a minimum payment of $8,500 in order to defer. If your request is not received before this deadline, your application will be cancelled.

Undergraduate Students must inform Crandall University that they want their application deferred to the September 2021 intake. If your request is not received before this deadline, your application will be cancelled.
