Obtaining the necessary travel documents can sometimes be a lengthy process, which may make it impossible for you to begin studies at UMKC for the semester to which you originally applied. In such a situation, you may request a deferral of admission to a later semester.
A deferral is only possible for up to two semesters. If you intend to delay your studies a full academic year you will need to reapply to UMKC and submit an additional application fee. When a deferral request has been approved and processed, you will receive new documentation from ISAO and new immigration documents that specify a new reporting date, needed to obtain your visa.
To request to defer your admission to a later semester, please complete the deferral form.
