A valid offer of admission
If your offer of admission is conditional due to the tuition fee requirement, the fee must have been paid in full before the deadline to keep the offer valid. When the tuition fee has been paid or if you are exempted from a fee your offer is only valid up until the last day to complete the mandatory on-line registration of your new programme. Neglecting either to pay the tuition fee (if required to do so) or to complete the mandatory on-line registration on time means your offer of admission will be forfeit.
The outbreak of coronavirus
If you are intending to decline the offer, please follow the instructions at universityadmissions.se.
You are welcome to apply to Chalmers again another year.
To decline the offer of a study place
Please take note that someone who has been granted a deferment of studies cannot under any circumstances be granted a refund of the tuition fee. No refund is possible after the first day of the semester.
If you have been offered a scholarship administrated by Chalmers, the scholarship cannot be deferred. Being granted a deferment means you may re-apply for a scholarship with no priority.
Invalid reasons for deferment application are such as not finding housing/accommodation and the personal economic situation (including not being granted a scholarship). The Corona outbreak
is not a valid reason for deferment, however it may be a valid reason for a
refund. The Corona outbreak and its consequences on the teaching form (a mixture of campus-based and remote education with some parts on campus and some parts online, in order to adapt to the current situation) during the autumn semester of 2020 is not a valid reason for deferment.

How to proceed
Under certain extraordinary circumstances it is possible to defer the start of your studies to the start of the next academic year. In such a case the reason must be well documented and possible to verify.
If you are required to pay a tuition fee, the fee must have been paid in full before the stipulated deadline at your invoice. If you have a valid reason you may apply at mid-August by doing the following:
- Specify the subject "Deferment of studies to the next academic year".
- State the reason and attach any relevant documentation to prove the reason, such as certificates. Any certificates must be possible to verify. Contact information is therefore necessary.
- Include your personal data (date of birth YYMMDD, name and the application number from your account at universityadmissions.se).
- Send the application and attachments at mid-August by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A decision will be sent from Chalmers admissions to you by e-mail. A Deferment of studies to the next academic year can only be granted by and is only valid when confirmed by Chalmers admissions.
Take note, An applicant who has been granted a deferment of
studies cannot begin his/her studies (claim his/her study place) during
the deferment period (one academic year) without any justifiable valid reason and only if
there is available study place.
How to claim the study place for the next academic year after being granted a Deferment
An applicant who wish to begin his/her studies (claim his/her study place) must re-apply to the same programme at universityadmissions.se/ antagning.se according to the instructions stated in the deferment decision. Other condition such as the applicant must contact Chalmers Admissions via email is also stated in the deferment decision. The copy of the deferment decision must be submitted together with the application at universityadmissions.se/antagning.se and it must be submitted before the official deadline of that application period.
