Deferment of Admission
Yale Law School grants a limited number of one-year deferrals. In exceptional cases, such as foreign academic scholarships or Teach for America, we may grant a two-year deferral.
More information about deferrals is included in the materials sent to admitted students. Please also visit our Admissions Blog for details about our deferral policy.
Transfer applicants and applicants admitted from the waitlist are not eligible for deferrals.
