Military Student Mobilization Policy


Lakeland University provides reasonable accommodations to any student called to emergency national or other government service. In the event a Lakeland University student is mobilized into the armed forces of the United States, the National Guard, or other mandatory government service, the following policy shall pertain. Students receiving orders to report for active duty or other mandatory emergency government service should notify the university through his/her Kellett School advisor indicating the date of activation and the projected length of active service when known. Preliminary notice may be given by phone, email, or by letter but shall be followed by the submission of a copy of the government orders or notice of activation which shall be forwarded to the Registrar for inclusion in the official record of the student.

Mobilization On or Prior to the Last Day to Withdraw

If a student is mobilized on or prior to the last day to withdraw from a course, the student shall receive a “W” as the course grade and shall be entitled to full tuition credit to enroll in a Lakeland course within one year of deactivation from mobilization.

Mobilization Following the Last Day to Withdraw

If a student is mobilized after the last day to withdraw from a course, the student may elect one of the following:

  1. With the full consent and cooperation of the instructor, receive an “I” (Incomplete) as the temporary course grade; and within 90 days of deactivation from mobilization, complete the course requirements, and receive a permanent course grade. Failure to complete the work within the prescribed time will result in an undergraduate student receiving an “F” and a graduate student receiving an “I” as the permanent course grade.
  2. Receive a “W” as the course grade and a full tuition credit to enroll in a Lakeland course within one year of deactivation from mobilization.

It is the student’s responsibility to notify Lakeland University of his/her mobilization status and to contact the instructor to make appropriate arrangements if option 1 is chosen. Failure to follow this procedure will result in the student receiving an “F” for any course unofficially vacated.
