Can freshmen withdraw and defer to a future term or take classes at another institution?

We understand this semester may not be what you expected, and we recognize your right to make this decision. If you are a first-time freshman, you have the option to defer admission, which means you will not attend another institution; in this case, your scholarship offer will remain intact so long as you enroll by fall 2021. You may also choose to begin your education at another institution. For more information about this path, please contact your regional recruiter.
