Accepted students seeking deferment will be considered on a case-by-case basis. To be considered, the student must write a letter to the Senior Associate Dean of Admissions explaining the reason(s) for deferment. Each case will be presented to and voted on by the Admissions Committee.
The Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University cannot hold scholarship offers made in the initial year of acceptance to the following year. A deferred student is eligible for scholarship offers in the following year but with no guarantee.
