According to uLethbridge's Undergraduate Academic Calendar > Admission > International Students > Subsection B (Deferral of Admission):
“International [undergraduate] applicants who are eligible for admission will receive an Offer [letter] of Admission to both the initial term specified and the next term of admission to their program, provided it is within one calendar year of the term to which the applicant initially applied (i.e. an applicant may receive an Offer of Admission for fall or spring, but not for fall of one year and fall of the next). The applicant must then specify on their Confirmation of Admission form which term offer they are accepting.
International applicants who have accepted the first term specified on their Confirmation of Admission may be eligible to defer admission to the second term offered if they are unable to attend the University of Lethbridge as initially indicated. An applicant may only defer admission to the second term indicated on their Confirmation of Admission. Applicants who initially accepted for the second term listed on their Confirmation of Admission may not defer to a later term.
Only one deferral will be granted per application. The non-refundable tuition deposit will be moved to the deferred admission term.
Applicants to programs that offer admission only once per calendar year, or those who would prefer an admission date later than the next available term, must re-apply [via ApplyAlberta] to their desired program. If an applicant chooses to re-apply, the initial tuition deposit will not be transferred to a future term."
*NOTE: Domestic students (Canadian citizens and permanent residents) are NOT eligible to request an admission deferral. They must either accept the university's offer of admission for the designated term of intake or if not, cancel/reject the offer and subsequently re-apply again for the intended future semester of entry, whenever that may be.
Should the above qualifying conditions apply as per your offer letter, then please email the uLethbridge Admissions & Transfer unit at email@example.com for guidance on the admission deferral process. Please reference your auto-generated 9-digit ULETH student ID number in the body of your email for faster service.
