Deferring Enrollment

Not ready to start school in the fall? Deferring enrollment for a semester or two may be an option. Students request deferred enrollment for a variety of reasons: service, national and international travel, familial reasons, and personal growth (to name a few).  A Request for Deferred Enrollment form, an Enrollment Confirmation form, and a $400 deposit (checks to "University of Portland") must be completed and submitted to University of Portland's Office of Admissions by May 1 (postmark date).

Nursing students will not be considered for deferred enrollment.

If you are approved for a deferred enrollment you will not be able to take any for-credit classes at another institution or community college.
