IV. Policy

Students who are accepted for admission, but would like to delay their enrollment to another admissions cycle, must complete the Admission Deferment Request form no later than 1 week prior to the beginning of the semester initially admitted to and submit it to the Office of Enrollment Management.  Once the form is received, Enrollment Management will consult with the Program Director to review the deferment request.  The student will be informed of the decision to defer enrollment by Enrollment Management in a formal admission or denial letter.  Students may defer their offer of admission one time only for up to one year.

Those who defer enrollment may need to submit/resubmit any or all of the Admission Checklist items that are in effect at RBHS at the time of admission following deferment.
