Deferral of Admission Awards

Information about a deferral of admission can be found on the Undergraduate Admissions website.

If Undergraduate Admission grants a deferral of your admission to the program of study that you have accepted (e.g. Commerce), then your scholarship will also be deferred.

Please note this is for merit-based scholarships only.

Any award that has financial need criteria cannot be deferred. Bursaries are granted based on your current level of financial need. If you are not able to attend in a given year you cannot defer your bursary to use in another year. You may apply for a General Bursary when you are a registered student at Queen’s University
