What does it mean to defer?
If you are accepted into a Smartly MBA class and are unexpectedly not able to dedicate the proper amount of time to the program, you may defer your acceptance by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. However, you may only defer to a subsequent cohort BEFORE the midterm.
Once your deferral is in effect, your progress will be frozen and you will not be able to take any lessons other than the Business Foundations courses that were available before you were accepted. Furthermore, you will only be able to join the Smartly Discussion Forum associated with the class that you are in. Lastly, once deferred, you will be automatically enrolled in the next class and can only defer a maximum of 1 time from your initial acceptance before you would have to reapply.
