Prospective Students

Candidates who are offered admission, but wish to delay their enrollment at Tulane Law School, may request deferral. 

Deferred Enrollment

Prior to the start of the semester for which enrollment has been offered, students who have been offered admission may request deferral of the offer of admission.  Tulane typically grants such requests for a one-year period if the candidate presents a compelling circumstance.  (Teach for America participants are granted two-year deferrals, if the request is made prior to starting the two-year Teach for America obligation.)  Detailed instructions are provided at the time that the request is granted.

Deferred candidates must pay the full commitment deposit by the usual spring deadlines.  The following fall, the deferred candidate must complete a new application form, submit the application fee, and reactivate the LSDAS subscription within a prescribed period.  So long as nothing has occurred to disqualify the candidate, a new acceptance letter is generated after the candidate has completed the process set out in the deferral instructions.  At that time, the candidate must submit a new commitment deposit.  Both commitment deposits are credited to the first semester's tuition and fees.

Candidates not granted deferred admission may reactivate their files for reconsideration.
