Defer Your Admission and Scholarship

If you have plans for military service, a church service mission, or other activities before starting your coursework at SUU, please do the following:

  1. Complete the admission application process. 
  2. Accept your scholarship.  If you have been awarded an Institutional scholarship, follow the instructions on the Accept Your Scholarship Award page.
  3. Complete the Admissions Deferment/Leave of Absence Form. This will allow you to postpone your attendance for up to six semesters without having to re-apply or pay the $15 re-application fee.
  4. Complete a Release of Information Form (if not completed in steps above) to allow your parent/guardian to transact business such as registering for classes or submitting financial aid application materials while you are away.
  5. Forward your emails from SUU to your designated parents/persons so they will be aware of opportunities, deadlines, requirements, and tasks to prepare for your attendance at SUU. To automatically forward an email you must use the settings for your email provider. For instance in Gmail, go to Settings and select "Forwarding", then enter the email address where you would like to forward emails.
