Appeals and Deferment

Need to appeal or defer your scholarship?

Seattle Promise requires that students enroll full-time (at least 12 credits) for each fall, winter, and spring quarter, starting the fall quarter immediately following high school graduation. We know life happens and you may need some added flexibility in certain quarters. Use this process to request flexibility due to extenuating life circumstance (you need flexibility due to reasons outside your control).

Submit a request as early as possible or as soon as you know an appeal or deferment is needed. Click on the links to download the appropriate form and follow the instructions.

Requests to enroll part-time or defer enrollment are due by the 10th day of the quarter for which you are requesting flexibility. You are encouraged to submit your request as early as possible so you can plan accordingly. 

Both the part-time and deferment requests require you submit an updated Ed Plan (built in collaboration with your Seattle Promise Retention Specialist). It can take some time to build these plans, make sure to schedule an appointment with your Retention Specialist as soon as you know you plan to submit a part-time or deferment request.
