In general the Graduate School does not grant deferrals. However, there may be circumstances when a defer request is considered. If granted, the deferral is normally for one year only; you are expected to have accepted Princeton’s offer of admission and support. Accordingly, if you request and are approved to defer admission you are considered under an obligation to enroll and attend the graduate program the following year.
Refer to the Graduate School Deferring Admission policy for more information.
