Moving Application to Another Quarter

If your circumstances have changed and you would like to enroll at Evergreen for a future quarter, call or email Admissions for instructions. You can only move your application once and it has to happen before the 10th day of the quarter you were originally admitted to start in.

Canceling or Withdrawing Your Application

We want you here! But if your plans have changed and they do not include Evergreen, inform us of your decision so that we can free up space for someone else. Once we cancel or withdraw your application, we retain the records for three years, so we’ll happily welcome you back when the time is right.
