Due dates A deferred place will lapse if the student does not complete enrolment requirements by the date specified in the ‘Return from Deferment’ letter sent in October/November each year.
No tertiary study while on deferment Students are unable to hold a deferred place if they are undertaking study at an alternate tertiary institution during that period.
