Ward's attorney, Everett Wess, said Wednesday U.S. District Judge Keith Watkins denied the request.
The judge had agreed to delay the trial until Nov. 4 so Ward could apply for the program that would have allowed the player to clear his record.
Wess says since Ward has no criminal record and wants to get a degree makes him ``the type of person that that program is for.''
Ward was arrested June 3 on charges of bribery related to a sports contest and conspiracy counts. He's accused of trying to fix the point spread in Auburn's game against Arkansas on Jan. 25, 2012. He has pleaded not guilty.
