Deferment from a McKay School Teaching Program

Before Leaving

Step 1.  Education Student Services (ESS)

Meet with an advisor in Education Student Services (350 MCKB, 801-422-3426) to do the following:

  • Review and revise your graduation plan

  • If you are deferring a MSE scholarship, complete a scholarship deferment form


Step 2. BYU Admissions Office

It is recommended that the deferring student grant an individual, of their choosing, Guest Access. The guest access allows the designated individual permission to interact with staff/admin on the deferring student’s behalf.


To complete an online Guest Access request go to:


If deferring to serve a mission or for other reasons, it is important that the student inform the Admissions Office (D-148 ASB, 801-422-2507) to obtain and complete an official University Deferment Form and to learn what a deferment and re-admission entails. Please note that submitting deferment documents does not drop enrolled classes, if needed. The student is responsible to ensure that classes are dropped.


Step 3. Financial Aid Office

We recommend that the Financial Aid Office (801-422-4104) be contacted to learn how deferring will affect financial aid status.


If deferring a BYU scholarship a deferment request must be submitted at the BYU Financial Aid office. If a MSE scholarship is deferred, a scholarship deferment form must be submitted at the ESS office.


Before Returning

Prior to returning, a courtesy call or email to ESS is recommended to schedule an appointment to verify the graduation plan and course registration.
