Called to Active Duty
Students who are alerted that they may be called into active duty need to plan for the possibility that they will have to leave the university prior to completing the academic term. Most often, the student will need to withdraw from the university; however, an exception for the need to withdraw may occur if the call to active duty occurs near the end of the academic term when the student has completed all or most course requirements. In such situations, students should consult with their instructors.
A student whose military unit is called into active duty (not near the end of the academic term) needs to contact different divisions on campus to help withdraw from the university to ensure proper procedures are put into place.
