You can immediately edit and submit applications in preparation.
If you wish to edit a submitted application (received), you need to withdraw this application first. Only then, you can edit it and submit it again.

Changes to the status of an application are usually not visible immediately within both portals. The data have to be synchronized first, which can take up to a few hours. Changes will be visible on the next day, at the latest.
Applications with the status „zurückgezogen“ (withdrawn) will not be considered. If you wish to edit and submit your application, log in the DoSV application portal of Freie Universität Berlin. Here, you can edit and submit your application before the deadline.

Once the request of deferment has been made, it cannot be taken back. The applicant loses the right to the allocation of a place of study for the semester in question.
