Undergraduate Admission to the University
Deferment/Gap Year

If a person applies for admission to an undergraduate program at Michigan State University for a specific semester and is accepted but chooses not to enroll for that semester and the application has not been canceled, the applicant may extend their offer of admission up to a period of one year (a maximum of two consecutive terms, see for term deadlines).  If, after one year, the person still has not enrolled at Michigan State, a new application for admission must be submitted. University financial aid is not allowed to be carried over, unless otherwise stated in writing.
