Get Started at Weber
Step 1: Apply for Admission
If you plan to put college on hold for any reason, including religious or military service, we strongly recommend you apply to Weber State before taking any time off — applying later may impact your eligibility for certain scholarships.
Step 2: Apply for Scholarships
If you’re deferring your enrollment to a later date, it is important to apply for scholarships before you go. Scholarship eligibility can change based on when you apply, and some awards might not be available later.
Step 3: Accept Your Scholarships
If you’ve been awarded a scholarship, it’s important to accept it before you temporarily leave Weber State. If you don’t, it may not be available when you return.

Before You Go
Step 1: Defer Your Scholarships
Once you have accepted your scholarships, you may be able to put them on hold if you’re temporarily leaving the university.
Step 2: Transfer Your Credit
If you’ve earned college credit from another school, make sure you have transferred those credits to Weber before you leave. This will make it easier for advisors to assist you when you return.
Step 3: Grant Access to Your Info
Weber State abides by falls under the Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). We may not release any of your personal information to anyone outside the university, other than you, without your written permission.
Your ability to defer a scholarship may depend on the reason for postponing your studies. Academic scholarships can be deferred for military deployment, medical leave, internship opportunities or religious service. Scholarships for participation in activities like club sports, band, orchestra or other groups cannot be deferred. Private scholarships may or may not be eligible for deferment.
When You Return
Step 1: Figure Out Finances
Remember: Tuition is due the Friday before classes begin each semester. Federal financial aid can take 8-10 weeks to process, and scholarships may depend on your federally determined need. Apply early!
Step 2: Find Your Starting Point
Whether you’re taking your first classes at Weber or coming back after some time off, it’s important to learn (or relearn) the ropes and get advising to help you reach your goals.
