Requesting a deferral

Request a deferral of acceptance

An offer of admission to King’s is made for a specific academic start term.  If you are unable to attend or choose to take a gap year for the term specified, you may be eligible to defer your acceptance to a future term. Request a deferral by emailing Tara Wigglesworth-Hines, Assistant Registrar Admissions, at tara.wigglesworthhines@ukings.ca and outlining the reason you are requesting a deferral.  Please briefly describe your intended activities between now and when you plan to begin your studies.

Upon receipt of your request an admissions representative will contact you to:

  • Outline your next steps in the deferral process (i.e. paying the $200 admission deposit to hold your spot until next year); or
  • Outline your options if the deferral is unavailable to you.

Once your request has been reviewed you will receive an email notification informing you of the decision.

Request a deferral of residence

If you have received a housing offer from King’s Residence, you may be eligible to defer your space to a future term. Request a deferral by emailing Elisabeth Stones in the Residence Office at residence@ukings.ca, and briefly outlining the reason you are requesting a deferral.

If you defer and have paid Residence Application Fee ($50) and/or Residence Confirmation Deposit ($400) they will be held and applied to the following year, at which time you will need to submit a fresh residence application.
