For all deferral requests, any balance remaining after
the fee will be applied toward your tuition in the new session.
If you choose to defer your admission to a future program session, you must attend that session or you will forfeit all funds previously paid. Only one deferral or substitution per registration is allowed and the new session must occur within one year of the original session date. Changes to your program registrations may affect any previously applied discounts (e.g. the multiple program registration discount), and may result in an increase in individual program registration fees. There is no cancellation allowed on deferred admissions.
Certain programs require a non-refundable deposit upon acceptance to secure enrollment; this is indicated in the email sent confirming your registration in the program. Should you be unable to attend the program, the deposit is not eligible for refund, regardless of cancellation/deferral date or reason. Within 42 days of the program start date, the standard cancellation and deferral fees will still apply.
Please note that you may take advantage of only one discount or special offer per program (e.g.,group pricing, MIT alumni discount, etc.). Discounts cannot be combined. Visit the FAQ to see a list of available discounts.
