EGR dtc - can it wait?

okay so today I checked my codes and along with the usuals I got a new one

P0488 Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Throttle Control Circuit A Range/Performance

My question is can it just be ignored? I plan on deleting the EGR in august when I come back down to school and wanna know if I can just ignore it till it comes out.

2008 F250 CC SB - It all wont fit in the sig so why bother?

P0488 X EGR Throttle Position Control
This error occurs when there is an error in throttle position
vs. desired position, high temperature condition and throttle
not returned to open position when commanded, faulty
input signal detected, or broken return spring detected.
THR_STATE is low > 3 sec Wiring, EGRTP, PCM

From my interpation on this its more on the throttle side.
