Students called to active military duty before completing their courses have two options. They must indicate their choice in writing to their dean before departure.
- If the student is close to completion of the course, he or she may request a grade of In Progress (IP). The student then completes the remaining required work when they return. There are no academic or financial penalties associated with a grade of IP. If the student does not complete the work within 90 days of his or her return, the grade of IP will be changed to W (Withdraw) and the student will need to re-register and retake the course.
- The student may request withdrawal from the course. There are no academic or financial penalties associated with withdrawal from a course under these circumstances. No drop fee will be charged and the student will receive a full tuition refund. The dropped course will not appear on the student’s transcript. The student may re-register and retake the course upon his or her return.
