University of Michigan officials say they will delay making new student admissions decisions until January tenth.

The postponement comes as the school sorts out its options related to a state ban on some types of public affirmative action programs.

Last week, a federal appeals court struck down a deal that would have given the University of Michigan, Wayne State University and Michigan State University an extra six months to comply with some requirements of Proposal Two.

The constitutional amendment bans the use of race and gender preferences in university admissions and government hiring and contracting.
