A Re-Activation Application [PDF] may be filled out by applicants who were accepted to Suffolk and never enrolled, or students who did not complete their initial application. Students may only re-activate their application for two consecutive semesters. If you have attended or plan to attend another institution or post-graduate program, you must have an official transcript sent directly to our office. All transfer and freshman applicants must submit any remaining final transcripts in order to complete their re-activation.

If you were accepted to Suffolk University, submitted a deposit, and wish to defer your enrollment do not use this form. Please fill out a Request for Deferred Enrollment [PDF].

Deferred Enrollment

A student who has been accepted to Suffolk University can defer their acceptance for up to two semesters. Students who defer must submit a non-refundable enrollment deposit to secure their space for the following semester or year. Students who applied as freshman are unable to enroll in a post-graduate program or matriculate at another university during deferment. Transfer students may not take additional college courses during deferment.

The full list of terms can be found on the Request for Deferred Enrollment [PDF].

Students who plan to take additional coursework or enroll at another institution should refer to the Re-Activation Application [PDF] for more information.


Students who have previously attended Suffolk University and left in good academic standing may fill out a Re-Entry Application [PDF] and submit it to the Office of Undergraduate Admission.

If you officially declared a leave of absence through the Dean of Students Office, you may reenter by filling out the Re-Entry Application [PDF] and sending it, along with a cover letter, to the Dean of Students Office:
