Undergraduate Enrollment Deposit Deferment Policy: Office of Admissions and Scholarship
To determine who is eligible to receive an enrollment deposit deferment.
Applies to undergraduate domestic new freshmen admitted students that plan on attending KU in the Summer or Fall semester. Must be understood by undergraduate domestic admitted freshmen, Office of Admissions and Scholarships staff, Student Account Services staff, New Student Orientation, SAKU IT team.
New students who plan to attend KU but would like a deferment of the $200 enrollment deposit must meet one of the following criteria to qualify for a deferment:
- Student received a KU admission application fee grant from the Office of Admissions and Scholarships
- Student will file the 2008-2009 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with a maximum Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) of $3,850 (this will not be approved until the FAFSA has been filed and the student has the demonstrated need)
- Student currently participates in a TRIO program, GEAR Up, or Project Discovery
- Student received the ACT/SAT fee waiver or participates in federal free/reduced lunch program
Students must complete the deferral form and submit as soon as possible. A student's admission may be canceled if the deferment form is submitted late. If the deferment is approved, the student's admission will be reinstated. The student will be notified by postcard whether or not the deferment has been approved. When a student receives a deferment, they do not have to pay the $200. This means that the $200 will not be subtracted from their total bill so their entire bill will be due.
