Deferral and Withdrawal Policies

Bridge students are able to Defer their enrollment to a future semester, Withdraw their enrollment, or Swap durations by the given deadline/s stated in the Enrollment Agreement (found in the NYU Tandon Bridge admission email). Students may do so by submitting the “Defer/Withdraw/Swap form” found in the Enrollment Agreement.

Shortly after deferring or withdrawing, you will be removed from the course, and lose access to the course site. Before the start of your deferral semester, you will receive a new admission email and you will need to re-accept your offer at that time if you wish to pursue the course.

If you defer or withdraw on or before the deadline date:

  • You will receive a full refund for payments you have made.
  • All outstanding balances will be removed from your account.
  • You will not owe any future payments.

If you withdraw after the deadline:

  • All outstanding balances will become due immediately.
  • All future payments will become due immediately.

If you remain enrolled, or if you withdraw after the deadline, and you do not submit payment as per above:

  • Your account will default to third-party collections.
  • You will be subject to late fees.

These provisions apply to all students, including Payment Plan participants.

DO NOT EMAIL OR CALL to request deferral or withdrawal. We cannot process a deferral or withdrawal over the phone or email. The only way to defer or withdraw is to fill out the form found in the Enrollment Agreement.

WE CANNOT ISSUE PARTIAL REFUNDS OR OTHERWISE “PRO-RATE” PAYMENTS. If you are enrolled in the course after the defer/withdrawal deadline, you owe the full cost of the course. We cannot issue full or partial refunds, with no exceptions.

Students who were admitted to a previous semester, and who deferred to a future semester, or withdrew and re-applied to a future semester, owe the cost of tuition being charged for the current semester, which may be higher than the cost that was being charged for the semester they deferred or withdrew from.


Same Semester Term Swaps

Students enrolled in a Bridge course with both 17 and 24 week durations can swap from the 17-week to the 24-week course (or vice-versa) for up to 2 weeks after the first exam. The exact Swap deadline for the course you are enrolled in can be found within the Enrollment Agreement within the NYU Tandon Bridge Admission email. Same semester term swaps must be submitted using the “Defer/Withdraw/Swap form”.

  • Swap requests made 5 days prior to the first exam cannot be accommodated and will be completed the day following your exam.
  • Your new course will take at least 24-hours to appear in NYU Classes. Once it appears you are responsible for contacting your TA’s or professors and having them adjust your Gradescope and Piazza accounts to reflect your new term duration.
  • All questions related to course material surrounding the duration swap must be directed to your TA’s or professors within the course site.

Retaking the Bridge course

Please note that the following instructions pertain to those who wish to retake the course after the defer/withdrawal deadline for their course has passed. You will owe tuition on both the withdrawn course and the future course. Tuition paid or owed for a current or past course cannot be applied toward tuition for any future courses.

Students who are currently enrolled and wish to retake the course, must

1) Submit the withdrawal form found in the Enrollment Agreement contained within the Bridge admission email to become eligible to re-apply.
2) Re-apply by submitting a Bridge Application by the deadline for the course you wish to retake.

Bridge Alumni who wish to retake the course can submit a Bridge Application by the deadline for the course you wish to retake.
