Offers: how to accept, decline, or ask for more time

Are you wondering what to say to accept an offer?

Nervous about how to professionally turn one down?

Trying to get a little more time to make a decision?

With the semester coming to a close and only a week until exams, we are hearing many questions about offers. Our Offer Etiquette handout has detailed information (including scripts!) for how to answer each of these questions and more. Click here to download the handout (note: if you have not logged into BentleyLink recently, you may receive an error message and need to log in to successfully download the handout).

Don’t forget, we are happy to review offers with you during drop-in hours or appointments. Once you do accept an offer, please email your advisor to let us know!
