Permission to write a deferred exam is a privilege, not a right, granted solely on the basis of extenuating circumstances.
A fee of $65 (per deferred exam request) will be charged to your account if your deferred request is approved. Pay online via self-service or at any campus after your request has been approved and no later than the end of the deferred exam period.

Requests, along with supporting documentation, must be submitted within three business days after the date on which the regular examination was scheduled and no later than the last day of the exam schedule.

a death has occurred in the immediate family (documentation such as obituary required).
you are unable to reschedule work commitments (documentation from employer required).
