I. OBJECTIVE & PURPOSE

To establish a University policy for students, and spouses of affected military personnel, who are called up for the purposes of military duty.

II. STATEMENT OF POLICY

Students who provide advanced notice are entitled to a leave of absence or complete withdrawal to engage in active duty, training for active duty, initial active duty for training, inactive duty for training, full-time National Guard duty, or attendance at an examination to determine their fitness for these kinds of duty.

These students will be provided with full refunds of tuition and other fees and will have a grade of “WS” posted on the transcript for the courses that were in progress at the time of their request. Additionally, a spouse of affected military personnel is granted the same consideration.

III. STATEMENT OF PROCEDURE

Students and/or spouses of affected military personnel called to military service may withdraw themselves online in myWings or in person at One Stop Student Services up until the deadline to withdraw for the term. To receive a full refund, the student must provide a copy of the affected military personnel’s orders to One Stop Student Services for review in Records and Registration.

If the withdrawal deadline has passed, a copy of the affected military personnel’s orders must be submitted to One Stop Student Services. After review by Records and Registration, the grade of WS will be recorded for ALL courses in which the student was enrolled (unless a grade of I [Incomplete] was issued by an instructor or other arrangements have been made). Once the WS is assigned, tuition will be refunded for those courses.
