Active Military Service Withdrawal
If called to active duty a student (or student who is a spouse/dependent child of a member of the military called to active duty, and who needs to withdraw due to the call-up), should contact the VA Certifying Official in the Registrar’s Office to complete a Military Leave of Absence form. Verification of military deployment must be submitted with the completed Military Leave of Absence form.
If the student is called to active duty before the mid-point of a term, the student may request to withdraw from some or all courses and the University will fully refund their tuition and mandatory fees for the withdrawn courses.
If the student is called to active duty military service during the term, the student may make arrangements with their instructors to remain enrolled in some or all of their course and will be assigned an I grade (Incomplete) for each course in which they remain enrolled. In such a case, no adjustment of tuition charges for enrolled courses will occur. Students have until the end of the next academic term following their release from military service to complete the course. Failure to do so will result in the I grade becoming an F grade.
A student receiving Veteran’s Benefits should notify the VA Certifying Official in the Registrar’s Office in order to complete the required documents.
A student will have one calendar year after the end of their deployment to re-enroll at Grand View. Grand View considers the end date of deployment to be the date listed on the original deployment papers, or more recent paperwork (such as a DD-214) that lists a deployment end date. After one calendar year beyond the deployment end date, the student will need to apply for readmission to Grand View through the Admissions Department.
A student will be re-enrolled in the same academic program (or the most similar one, if same program does not exist), will carry forward the same number of credits, and same academic status. Grand View University scholarship awards will be preserved for students holding such awards when called to active duty.
During the first academic year of return, the veteran will be assessed the same tuition and fee charges as were in effect during the academic year he/she left the program (Veterans or other service member education benefits may be taken into account) or up to the amount of tuition and fee charges that other students in the program are assessed for that academic year, if veteran’s education benefits, as defined in section 480(c) of the HEA, or other service member education benefits, will pay the amount in excess of the tuition and fee charges assessed for the current academic year in which the student left for Grand View.
A student who wishes to re-enroll at Grand View after deployment should contact the VA Certifying Official in the Registrar’s Office. The VA Certifying Official will serve as the main point of contact for the student during the re-enrollment process.
