Deferral and Withdrawal Policies

Please see below the rules that apply to Bridge to Tandon students regarding the deferral and withdrawal of your admission and enrollment. All deadlines mentioned below are specific to your course, and can be found in your admission letter. Individuals who wish to defer or withdraw must submit the “Defer/Withdraw form” found in your admission letter. The deadline for who students (who accept their offer) to defer or withdraw enrollment is 28 days* after the start of the course (please see your admission letter for the specific date for your course). Individuals who submit the Defer/Withdraw form before the deadline will not be financially responsible. Individuals who submit the Defer/Withdraw form after the defer/withdraw deadline are financially liable for the course. You will have the option to defer your admission one time only, for up to two semesters (or for the term/s available on your defer/withdraw form). Please note, if you defer or withdraw your admission from the semester you were admitted to, you will be removed from the course. If you defer, you will be re-admitted to the future semester of your choice listed on your Defer/Withdraw form. You will receive a new admission letter before the start of the semester you defer to, and you will need to accept your offer at that time. After the defer/withdraw deadline has passed, students will only be able to withdraw, not defer their admission. Please note that the cost of the course is subject to change at any time. Changes to tuition costs apply to students deferring to a future semester. Please read the Tuition Disclaimer for more information.

*Individuals who do not accept their offer by the deadline to respond to their admission offer will not be able to defer. However, students who wish to defer their admission before the deadline to accept their offer should not accept their admission offer, but instead, submit the Defer/Withdraw by the deadline to accept the offer. Individuals who do not accept their offer by the deadline to respond to their admission offer will need to submit a new application should they wish to be considered for a future term.

  • Deferring or withdrawing before the defer/withdraw deadline:
    • Individuals who submit the Defer/Withdraw form before the deadline will not be financially responsible.
    • To defer or withdraw, admitted students must complete the Defer/Withdraw form found in their admission email by the deadline.
    • Students who have not paid, and submit the Defer/Withdraw form by the defer/withdraw deadline for their course will have the balance removed from their account.
    • Students who have paid and submit the Defer/Withdraw form by the defer/withdraw deadline for their course will have the payment will be refunded.
    • Once you have submitted the Defer/Withdraw form please allow several weeks after the defer/withdraw deadline for your course for all tuition drops and reimbursements to be processed.
    • Individuals who wish to withdraw their admission before the deadline to accept their offer should not fill out the Defer/Withdraw form. Instead, please decline your offer as indicated in your admission letter.
  • Withdrawing after the Defer/Withdraw deadline:
    • Individuals who submit the Defer/Withdraw form after the defer/withdraw deadline are financially liable for the course.
    • Students who have signed up for the Payment Plan, and defer or withdraw after the deadline, are still responsible for making tuition all payments by the Payment Plan due dates, however, we recommend that you complete any outstanding payments at the time of your withdrawal.
    • After the defer/withdraw deadline students will only be able to withdraw, not defer their admission. If you wish to apply again for a future semester you must submit a new application.
  • Same semester term swaps (switching from the 17 week course to the 24 week course, and vice versa, for the semester you were admitted to) must be sent to tandon.online@nyu.edu no later than 2 weeks after your first exam. Please see your admission email for the exact date for your course.
