Many students decide to defer their offer of a place at university for a number of reasons. If you are considering deferring your offer at CSU there are several options to consider.
Deferring an offer allows you to delay the commencement of your course for up to two years. You might use this time to think about careers, earn money or travel. If you do defer an offer, you are guaranteed a place in that course the following year or intake.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are wanting to defer an offer you have already accepted online, you will not be able to indicate your intention to defer via this method. You will simply need to complete the deferment of offer form below and send to the admissions office indicating your decision change. The option to defer after accepting is only available if the census date of your first session of study has not yet passed.
You are required to pay a refundable deferment fee. This fee will be refunded upon request once you have commenced the course or another course at CSU. Please refer to the Deferment of Offer Form for information on making payment.

Please contact us if you cannot commence study in the session you have been offered so that we can explore the option of an offer to a later intake.
There are many ways to use your deferment time to your best advantage:
