The College will make every effort to accommodate the needs of a student called to active military duty during an academic term. Students who receive orders to report for active U.S. military duty are instructed to contact the Office of Student Affairs. A student in this situation must present his/her Military Orders to initiate accommodations regarding coursework in progress. An approved plan regarding coursework must be established prior to a student's departure.
Generally, there are three approaches that may be taken:
1. If orders received late in the term, a student may be able to complete coursework prior to leaving.
2. In some situations it will be feasible for a student to receive an Incomplete in a course or courses. If it is not feasible to receive an Incomplete, a student will be allowed to drop a course or courses with a full refund of tuition and fees associated with the dropped course(s). If a student receives an Incomplete but is unable to complete the work due to a change in circumstances, the student may appeal to the Committee on Student Academic Performance and Procedures for a retroactive course drop under the same terms outlined above.
3. In many situations, it will be necessary for a student to withdraw from the College to fulfill military obligations. In this circumstance, a student will be withdrawn from all courses with 100 percent refund of tuition and fees and unused portion of room and board.
