How can I defer my acceptance?

If you choose to defer your acceptance, you must still send us your final official high school transcript. You will also need to send any updated SAT and/or ACT scores, which should be sent directly from the testing agencies. Your application may be re-reviewed based on any new academic information.

You can defer your entry for up to one year; after one year has passed, you’ll need to reapply. If you take 12 or more credit hours at another institution during your year of deferment, you must reapply to IU Bloomington.

To defer, fill out the online deferral form in Atlas at least two weeks before the start of the term for which you originally applied.

How can I cancel my application?

If you’d like to cancel your application, you can do that on the Intent to Enroll page.
