Medical and Operational Military Absences

The academic record of a student may be deleted completely for a given term when the student is absent for a portion of the term for medical or operational reasons. The transcript will show, “Excused for the term for medical reasons” or “for operational military reasons.” The student shall not be permitted to delete only a portion of the courses for this reason. The grade “W” shall be used when it is necessary to withdraw from only a part of the student's program. Such excusals shall be requested by the Program Officer and approved by the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs.
