Newly Admitted Students

Congratulations on your admission to UC Davis! 

The first step for all students is to submit your Statement of Intent to Register (SIR).  We ask you SIR as soon as possible (whether you are attending UC Davis or not) so that we can plan accordingly and you can complete all the steps to start here in the fall in a timely manner, and receive all the important emails throughout the summer.

Fall 2020 Deferral Requests

The Civil and Environmental Engineering Graduate Program will accept requests for deferrals, submitted from May 20, 2020 to August 15, 2020 (requested will be reviewed and approved on a rolling basis, however the actual processing of an approved deferral request will take some time).

At this time, we do not have much information about what fall instruction will look like.  It is recommended you consider waiting to make your deferral request until more information is available about all fall enrollment options. 

Please read all the information below BEFORE submitting your request through this online form.

  • To make a deferral request, you must have submitted your SIR (Statement of Intent to Register) as a "Yes", AND you must NOT have enrolled in any Fall 2020 courses*.  If you did enroll, you will need to cancel/withdraw for the term and apply for readmission rather than deferment – please contact Lauren if this is the case, and do not complete the online form.
    • *Note: this does not apply to students who are enrolling in their last undergraduate term at UC Davis in fall in order to graduate. Please contact Lauren Worrell if this applies to you.
  • You may only request to change your admission term one time.  Once your deferral is approved, you will not be able to request another change (to an earlier or later term).  Please be sure of your request before submitting the form.
  • A deferral request can be made for one, two, or three quarters (up to one year max).
  • If you also have a funding offer, please inquire about the possibility of deferring the funding offer before submitting the admission deferral request.  Approval of the admission deferral does not guarantee a deferral of a funding offer.
  • If you are requesting a deferral for one or two quarters (a winter or spring quarter start), you must also speak to your major professor and/or GPC representative to understand how this will impact the courses you plan to take, your program of study, and your time to degree.
  • For any questions, please reach out to Lauren Worrell PRIOR to submitting the online form.
