Proposed Policy for new grade WS, Withdrawal for Military Service
Policy Subject: Students called to active military duty
Effective Date: (Originally 12/5/2001)
Responsible Unit: Academic Affairs
I. Objective and Purpose
To establish a University policy for students who are called up for the purposes of military duty.
III. Statement of Policy
Students who provide advanced notice are entitled to a leave of absence 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 "WS" posted for the courses that were in progress at the time of their request.
The degree requirements that were in effect at the time when continuous enrollment was broken, including pre-requisite and general education requirements, may be applied to these students' programs of study at the time of their return.
IV. Statement of Procedures
Students 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 his/her orders with a fee petition to the Controller's Office up to six months after the term.
If the withdrawal deadline has passed, the student must submit a copy of his/her orders with a Waiver of University policy to One-Stop Student Services. After review by Academic Affairs, the grade of WS will be recorded for ALL courses in which the student was enrolled (unless a grade of incomplete was issued by an instructor). Once the WS is assigned, tuition will be refunded for those courses.
