Deferring International Admission

Not coming this semester? Let us know!

Sometimes family and work obligations may cause a delay in your education plans. Regardless of the reason, let us know what your plans are.  To begin the process of deferring your application, fill out the electronic "Application Update Request Form" through your student E-Services Account. You can access the Guide To Update for more information on how to access your student account and make an update request.

The "Application Update Request Form" is used to change:

  • The intended start semester (term)
  • The degree you wish to pursue
  • The degree-seeking status
  • Final Application Update Deadline
  • Fall
    June 15
  • Spring
    November 15 
  • Summer
    April 1

In some cases, you must submit a new application, application fee and application documents if:

  • You applied but did not enroll, and it has been more than a year since the intended start semester.
  • You are a UHCL graduating student or a UHCL alumni who desires to take additional courses after graduation or pursue a second degree.
  • You are an enrolled graduate student who desires to pursue a second degree simultaneously.
  • You have not been enrolled at UHCL for more than a year. (For example, you last attended fall 2018 and you want to return spring 2020).
  • You change your status from non degree-seeking to degree-seeking.
  • You want to change your application to a different degree level (i.e. undergraduate to graduate or vice versa)
