Military Policy

Students who, during the course of an academic term, are called into active military service, including National Guard and Reserve active duty, and are not in attendance at the end of the term, will be considered to be a case of extreme hardship.  These students will receive course, residence, and refund credits as follows: 

  1. Departure during the first three weeks of class.
    1. Grading and Credit Procedures:
      • No course credit, no grades.
      • A notation will be placed on transcript.
    2. Procedure for University Charges:
      • Full credit of tuition and fees and prorated credit of room and board.
  2. Departure after the third week through the twelfth week.
    1. Grading and Credit Procedures:
      • A “W” grade designation for all courses will appear on the student’s academic transcript.  However, the student will receive no course credit.
      • A notation will be placed on transcript.
    2. Procedure for University Charges:
      • Tuition and fees will be credited; room and board will be prorated. Students receiving financial aid will have tuition and room and board applied first to the programs from which funds were awarded.  Students receiving financial aid in excess of direct costs; i.e., early October/late February refund checks, MAY be required to repay a percentage of the financial aid refund.  The amount of repayment will depend upon the length of time the student was enrolled and the amount of financial aid received.
  3. Departure after the twelfth week through the end of the semester.
    1. Grading and Credit Procedures:
      • Students will be given a choice of all “W’s” or all “IN’s” for all courses in progress at the time of departure.  If the student does not make a decision, all “IN’s” will be recorded on the transcript.  Upon being readmitted for continuing studies, the student may choose to change all “IN” grades to all “W” grades or to continue the “IN” grade for completion within the first eleven weeks of the next major semester attended.  At the option of the professor and with the consent of the student, a final grade may be awarded during the last three weeks of the semester.
        1. Students who choose all “W’s” (Withdrawals).
          • A “W” grade designation for all courses will appear on the student’s academic transcript.  However, the student will receive no course credit. A notation will be placed on the transcript.
        2. Students who choose all “IN’s” (Incompletes)
          • An “IN” grade designation for all courses will appear on the student’s academic transcript.  Students will receive a term in residence.
        3. Students who choose all grades or a combination of grades and “IN’s” (Incompletes).
          • An “IN” grade designation or a letter grade designation (A, B, C, D, F, S, etc.) for all courses will appear on the student’s academic transcript. Students will receive a term in residence.
    2. Procedures for University Charges:
      1. Students who choose all “W’s” (Withdrawals).
        • Tuition and fees will be credited.
        • University room and board will be prorated.  Students receiving financial aid will have tuition and room and board applied first to the programs from which funds were awarded.  Students receiving financial aid in excess of direct costs MAY be required to repay a percentage of the financial aid refund. The amount of repayment will depend upon the length of time the student was enrolled and the amount of financial aid received.
      2. Students who choose all “IN’s” (Incompletes).
        • Tuition and fees will not be credited; room and board will be prorated.
