Academic Considerations

Your Options

The OSU Veteran Certifying Officials, in conjunction with academic advisors, will work with students on a case-by-case basis, looking at each request in an independent manner. In general, students called to active military duty have the following options:

  • Full withdrawal from all courses at any point during the term without academic or financial penalty. Tuition would be refunded in full.
  • Partial withdrawal from some (but not all) courses at any point during the term without academic or financial penalty. Students who have completed a significant portion of their course work may be eligible to

    1. receive the grades earned in courses up to that point in time and/or
    2. request incomplete grades according to existing guidelines

    Tuition would be refunded for withdrawn courses.

  • No withdrawal from any courses. Students who have completed a significant portion of their course work may be eligible to a) receive the grade earned in courses up to that point in time and/or b) request incomplete grades according to existing guidelines. No tuition would be refunded.
  • Decisions as to which option is best for the student will depend on the student’s personal details, the time remaining in the term, the portion of coursework completed at the time of military activation, and understandings which can be reached with instructors.
  • Please contact the Office of the Registrar, (541) 737-4048, with any questions.

Financial Considerations

If you have federal financial aid, it is important that you contact the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships before you are deployed. Even if you are deployed and receive a full refund from the institution, the Federal Department of Education policies still require that financial aid offices perform a Return of Title IV Funds calculation on your Federal Financial Aid award to determine how much aid you may be able to retain after your withdrawal for the term.

Students may obtain enrollment certification at no charge via the link provided through their MyOSU portal. NSC certificaitnos are official and need no further insitutitonal signature or seals.

OSU Military Duty Refund Policy and Procedures

Any student with orders to report for active military duty may withdraw at any time during the term and receive a full refund. If sufficient course work has been accomplished and the instructor feels justified in granting credit for the course work completed, credit may be granted and no refund will be given.

If you are called to active duty during the term, please contact the OSU Veteran Certifying Officials as soon as you receive your orders for instruction on how to withdraw from any or all courses at OSU.
