Military Activation/Deployment

Students who are deployed, ordered or inducted into active service in the armed forces of the United States or requested to work for the federal government during a national emergency or limited national emergency should submit the following (see submission instructions on checklist below):

  1. A completed and signed Military Activation/Deployment Checklist (PDF, 1152 KB);
  2. A copy of the student's active duty order to substantiate military activation;
  3. Legal documentation of power of attorney (required only for requests submitted by power of attorney on the student's behalf).

If activation/deployment occurs during a term and prevents the students from completing classes, an Extenuating Circumstance must also be completed and submitted along with the items above. Only military activation or deployment that required or will require an extended absence will be considered for an Extenuating Circumstance for a possible partial or full refund. See the Refunds web page for complete information on refunds and withdrawals.

Program Readmission

After deployment, students may request readmission to their prior academic program by submitting the Program Readmission After Military Activation/Deployment form (PDF, 793 KB) along with a copy of their deployment papers or their most recent DD214 Form to substantiate military activation or deployment. Students requesting admission to a new program of study must submit an online application for admissions.
