Military Service Activation

The Policy on Military Service states that students who, during the course of an academic term, are called into active military service, including National Guard and Reserve, and are not in attendance at the end of the term, will be considered to be a case of extreme hardship. Students who have been activated should notify the Office of the Registrar as soon as possible of their situation. Upon proper notification and submission of active duty orders, eligible students may receive special consideration for tuition and fee refunds and/or course credit options. The Policy on Military Service is available online. For additional information, contact the Office of the Registrar, 110 Sherman Hall, (309) 298-1891.
