When a student is called to active military duty, a process is in place to make that transition as seamless as possible.
Each state institution of higher education, as defined in section 3345.011 of the Revised Code, shall grant a student a military leave of absence from the institution while the student is serving on active duty, and for one year after the conclusion of that service, if the student is a member of the United States national guard or other reserve component of the armed forces of the United States, or a member of those armed forces in a retired status, and is called to active duty. The student shall not suffer an academic penalty as a result of the leave of absence
Contact the Military and Veterans Resource Coordinator as quickly as possible:
Be ready to submit your orders either in person to the Newark Gateway in Hopewell Hall or via email to Charlene Ross.
A step by step checklist will be given to help you complete the steps necessary and find the best course of action in your current enrollment.
