ELTI Deferral Policy

A deferral is when a student needs to postpone their admission date. There are many reasons why a student may need to request a deferral. ELTI will allow students to request a deferral for the next admission date.

In order for applicants to be granted a deferral, they must complete the following steps:

  1.  Submit proof of a visa denial letter, or of a late visa appointment date.
  2. Please send us proof of your paid I-901 fee.
  3. You must reapply to ELTI, including filling out a new application, paying the $90 application fee, and submitting all new documents if they have expired. As a reminder bank statements must be valid within 6 months.

We do not have a limit on the number of deferral requests an applicant can request.
