When I return to school after a deferment, how do I get my scholarship reinstated?

When a student is ready to return to school after a deferment, he/she must submit a scholarship reinstatement request notifying the scholarship office that they will be returning to school. Completed requests must be submitted by no later than 30 days prior to the semester you are approved to return. In the case of an internship or mission deferment, the student must also submit proof of completion. If the student is returning from a medical deferment a note from the treating physician is needed. If the student is a National Merit Scholar they must also contact the National Merit Corporation. The reinstatement request and eligibility criteria can be found online at and is listed with online forms and publications.
