If an Edgewood military/veteran student is activated from reserve status to active duty during a term, session or semester, the student must present a copy of the official orders to the Veterans Services Coordinator. At that time the student will be presented with and need to choose one of two possible options:
1 – The student may withdraw from classes immediately.
A – Edgewood will not hold the student accountable for tuition-related expenses for the term, session, or semester.
a – Edgewood will return any tuition it has received to the VA as soon as the withdrawal is completed. No payment will be made to the student by Edgewood during this refund.
b – The student will be responsible for the repayment of any funds that the student received from the VA or other entity while enrolled in the current term, session or semester courses, as a result of the withdrawal.
B – A “W” will be represented on the student’s official transcript to show the withdrawal.
2 – The student may request that the course professor award the grade of “incomplete” for the current term, session or semester.
A – If the student has completed a substantial portion of the course and required coursework, the professor may approve the student request for an “incomplete” in the course as long as a timeline to complete the work has been established.
a – An extension to timeline for completion of the “incomplete” grade may be requested by the student, and if approved by the Instructor/Department, may be granted by the Office of Academic Affairs, if the student’s active duty requirement extends beyond the normal time limit for “incomplete” grades to be completed.
