How to Apply


If you are called to active duty, we want the withdrawal process to be easy and quick. Just fill out the Withdrawal from the University form and attach your deployment papers. Turn both forms into Student Registration & Financial Services in 224 South Hall.

Re-Admittance after Deployment

If you choose to return to the University after deployment, there is no need to re-apply. Please contact the School Certifying Official, Ms. Denise Davey-Smith and let her know when you plan to return. The process for utilizing your educational benefits remains the same.
