Readmission following a student’s release or return from active duty or mobilization is handled through the Graduate Office. All students who leave in good standing and have not enrolled in a degree-seeking study at another institution are eligible to return without time limit unless there are other encumbrances to their enrollment or when accreditation or other external policies impose time limits.
Graduate students must inform their advisor or department chair and The Graduate School when they receive the orders to report to active duty and when they seek readmission. Previous offers of assistantships and other financial aid are not automatically continued upon readmission, and graduate students must request consideration from the graduate program for such support when they seek readmission.
Applicants to the College who have accepted an offer of admission, but who have not yet registered for classes, are eligible to defer enrollment. They are permitted to enroll with the next entering class following discharge from active duty, provided the College receives adequate notice of the applicant’s intention to enroll. The applicant need not reapply for admission or pay an additional application fee.
