Information for Faculty

  • Veterans may miss class due to VA appointments which, if missed, can take 1 to 4 months to be rescheduled
  • Any student with orders to report for active military duty may withdraw at any time. If sufficient coursework has been accomplished and the instructor feels justified in granting credit for the course, credit may be granted.
  • Incomplete Grade Policy: When a requirement of a course has not been completed for reasons acceptable to the instructor and the rest of the academic work is passing, a report of "I" (incomplete) may be made and additional time granted. The "I" is only granted at the discretion of the instructor.    (See AR 17 for the full policy)
  • Consider including information on class syllabi for student veterans, such as:
    "Veterans and active duty military personnel with special circumstances are welcome and encouraged to communicate these, in advance if possible, to the instructor."
