   College Decision Deadline Extension Request

Dear {college admissions office}:

I am incredibly grateful and excited about my recent admission to {College Name}. I understand that the deadline to submit my statement of intent to enroll is {date}. However, I am writing to respectfully request an extension until {date}.

While {College Name} is my top choice, my family is still working through the financial details. I submitted an appeal to the university’s financial aid department and have been told to expect a response regarding additional {need/merit} aid by {date}.

I look forward to hearing whether my response date can be extended. Thank you very much for your consideration.
