Subject to change. BPPs and the Faculty have the rights to amend the procedures and regulations without prior notice.
1. I would like to defer my study.
I’m applying for deferment before the end of Week 2 AND I haven’t registered as an active student yet . How do I go about it?
1. No need to register as an active student.

2. Write a letter/email to the Dean requesting approval for deferment of study. Take note that deferment application can only be performed for the current semester. If you plan to defer your study again next semester, you need to re-apply (max 3 semesters1 over the period of study). Once approved, the Faculty will submit a memo to BPPs. You will then need to periodically check in eStudent for your status to be updated to “Tangguh Pengajian”.

1For International Students, please consult UNIMAS GLOBAL first before you decide to apply for study deferment.
