CASPA Deferral Process – NEW! 

We are happy to announce that we have arranged to unlink the deferral of students from the Settings Transfer process for the 2022-2023 cycle. 

The new deferral process will defer students from the 2021-2022 cycle to the 2022-2023 cycle on November 14, 2022, (rather than on April 29 with Transfer Settings). With this later date, we hope schools will be able to better manage students between cycles and will capture more complete data about the 2021-2022 matriculating class.  

In previous years the deferral process was included as part of settings transfer and schools that wished to defer students from the current cycle to the next were required to place applicants into a “Deferred” decision code status in April when settings transfer became available.  

In the 2021-2022 application cycle the deferral process will be different.  Instead of placing students in the “Deferred” decision code, schools will use a newly created decision code – “Defer to Next Cycle” – to initiate this process.  The old “Deferred” decision code will be renamed “Deferred DO NOT USE” and deferral of students via the Settings Transfer process in April will be deactivated.  The new process is outlined below. 

Deferral Process 

  • By 11:59pm on November 7, 2022, schools must place all students to be deferred from the 2021-2022 cycle to the 2022-2023 cycle in a Local Status that maps to the Decision code “Defer to Next Cycle”. 
  • On November 21, 2022, all applicants in the “Defer to Next Cycle” decision code status will be rolled over to the 2022-2023 application cycle.  
  • Liaison will confirm if any deferred applicants have already created accounts in the new CASPA cycle and initiate the re-application process as appropriate.  
  • A quality check will be completed on the applicants’ data 

The following data will carry forward:  

  • Personal Information  
    • Biographic Information  
    • Citizenship Information  
    • Contact Information  
    • Race & Ethnicity  
    • Family Information  
    • Other Information  
  • Academic History  
    • Standardized Tests  
    • Colleges Attended  
    • High Schools Attended  
    • Coursework  
    • Transcripts  
    • Continuing Education Courses  
  • Supporting Information  
    • Experiences  
    • Achievements   

The following data will not be carried forward:  

  • Any CASPA-created “Custom Question” or “Custom Question Block”, such as the Influences section  
  • Any Program Materials information (e.g. Questions, Documents, Prerequisites, etc)  
  • Any Document uploads or Evaluations  
  • The CASPA Personal Statement  

Students deferred by this process will have the following indicators in WebAdMIT: 

  • Verification status will be “Unverified” 
  • Application status will be “Manual” 

Once deferred, schools can assign these students a Local Status which is mapped to the Designations by Decision Code= Matriculated. 

For any questions, please contact the WebAdMIT Support team available Monday – Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM ET at 857-304-2020 or via email at
