Deferment From a McKay School Teaching Program
Things to Do
Meet With an AdvisorMeet with an advisor in the Education Advisement Center (350 MCKB, 801-422-3426) to review and revise your graduation plan.
- You can set up guest access and complete any of the necessary documents for deferral at the following website: https://enrollment.byu.edu/checklists/leave-of-absence.
- It is recommended that the deferring student grant guest access to an individual of their choosing. The guest access allows the designated individual permission to interact with staff/administration on the deferring student’s behalf. To complete an online guest access request, go to: https://guestaccess.byu.edu.
Financial Aid/Scholarship DefermentIf you have been awarded a scholarship, you may be able to defer those funds for the semesters after you return. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
University Deferment FormsYou may apply for a leave of absence or missionary deferment. Please read the eligibility policies that are located at this site. Note: Students may have at least one semester (not including Spring/Summer Terms) of discontinuance without the need of submitting a deferment or leave of absence.
Important: Submitting deferment documents does not drop enrolled classes. The student is responsible to ensure that classes are dropped.
