Defer your offer

If you have received a Letter of Offer from ACU but are not ready to commence your studies, you may request permission to defer your place.

Most students defer until the next available opportunity to enter their course – usually the following semester. In some cases, you may have to wait until the following year. 

To request to defer your offer, contact international.admissions@acu.edu.au and provide the following information:

  • Your full name
  • Your date of birth
  • The reference number on your offer letter
  • Your reason for deferring
  • The new date you would like to commence your studies.

In some circumstances (such as for highly competitive courses) deferral may not be possible.  Our International Admissions team will advise you if this applies to you and what options you may have to undertake study in the future.
