Withdrawal for Military Duty

A person who, in a special situation, is called to active duty in any branch of the military services of the United States while enrolled as a student of Lincoln University will be released from his/her academic responsibilities without penalty. The following options are available:

  1. A student called to active duty may request to withdraw from all classes and receive a full refund of incidental fees/tuition paid for class enrollment. The refund of fees paid for residential living (room and board) will be prorated.
    Note: This transaction must be initiated in the Office of the Registrar.
  2. A student called to active duty who has completed at least 85 percent of the time designated for a course may initiate a request, through the instructor of record, the he/she be permitted either to receive an "I" grade in the course or to take an early final examination and receive a final grade.
    Note: This transaction should be properly noted (to include signatures of both the student and instructor, if at all possible) with a copy of the agreement placed on file in the following offices: Department Head, College Dean, and Vice President for Academic Affairs.

No modifications in any of the policy options will be permitted. Once a student notifies the designated University representative of his/her decision, the action selected will be considered final.

Note: Any property, i.e., equipment, instruments, books, belonging to the University that the student has in his/her possession should be returned to the lending source prior to separation.

The approved "I" grade(s) received by a student called to active military duty before the official close of the academic semester shall be maintained as a part of her/his academic record until such time as he/she re-enrolls in school. Upon re-enrollment, the student shall be given up to two full semesters to satisfy the requirements of the course(s) that were left unmet at the time of his/her departure from the University.
