Policy on Deferral


The Ziegler School does not generally grant deferrals on offers of admission. Students who are admitted but who choose to delay matriculation for a year are typically required to re-activate their application for admission by January 1 prior to the Fall semester in which they plan to matriculate. An abbreviated essay explaining how the candidate spent the intervening year and the ways in which that experience strengthened the candidate’s Jewish commitments may be submitted in lieu of a full complement of admissions essays. Candidates seeking re-admission are usually asked to meet the Committee on Admissions again.
