Upon submission of a valid set of orders to active duty, students who are members of National Guard or Reserve forces involuntarily called to extended active duty (EAD) will be offered:
A. Remission of Fees:
- Tuition Fees will be held in escrow for 12 months and applied in full to tuition costs upon the student’s re-enrollment. Should the student elect not to continue at Newberry upon release from EAD, tuition fees will be refunded upon written request.
- All other fees up to the time of involuntary call will be charged on a pro rata basis. Any fund balance (for unused services from call-up to semester end) will be held in escrow with tuition fees and applied to student expenses upon release from active duty and return to Newberry. Should the student elect not to return to Newberry, these unused funds are available for refund upon written request of the student.
B. Student Course Enrollment and Course Grades:
- Registration to Mid-Term: Students involuntarily called to EAD may withdraw from course enrollment without penalty.
- Mid-Term to semester end: Students involuntarily called to EAD may withdraw from course enrollment without penalty. Students involuntarily called to EAD within the final two weeks of the course who desire, upon request, will be allowed to take an early final examination and retain the course grade earned.
This policy applies only to students involuntarily called to extended active duty.
