SSM 201–18: Military Activation of Students
To assist students who are members of the National Guard, the Reserves, or other branch of the U.S. Armed Forces and are unable to continue in classes because of activation for military duty
University Registrar’s Office
Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost of the University
A student who is a member of the National Guard, Reserve, or other U.S. Armed Forces branch and is unable to complete classes because of military activation may request complete or course withdrawals, incompletes, or grades, depending on the timing of the activation and the individual student’s needs. Absences resulting from military activation will not adversely affect a student’s catalog year.
To receive consideration under the military activation policy, a student should complete a Military Activation Form and return the completed form, along with a copy of the military activation order, to the Veterans Services section of the University Registrar’s Office at the Tempe campus or the Veterans Services Office at the West campus. The Veterans Services staff will coordinate the processing of the form for the student, including verification of orders, counseling on available options, referrals to academic departments, referrals or notification to offices regarding potential refunds, and initiation of processing administrative withdrawals or incomplete grades.
|Note:||Students unable to contact the University Registrar’s Office at the Tempe campus or the Veterans Services Office at the West campus prior to departure may submit the necessary form and documentation of military orders upon their return and appropriate action will be taken to adjust the students’ records and financial obligations.|
