Active duty students that receive deployment orders during a quarter of study and are unable to complete the quarter are eligible for withdrawal from classes and a 100% refund of tuition and fees. If this happens to you, submit a copy of your deployment orders to Enrollment Services in Lynnwood Hall and a completed registration form indicating your desire to drop classes.

If you are receiving state or federal financial aid, there is no penalty associated with your withdrawal. Provide the Financial Aid department with a copy of your deployment orders and a brief letter explaining why you must withdraw. You may return to school in good standing at a later time.
