Refund and Withdrawal Policy for Service Members

Stevenson University students who are called to active duty during the course of a term or session should contact the Assistant Registrar, VA Programs to formally withdraw for military service. For the purpose of this policy, military service is defined as “service, whether voluntary or involuntary, in the armed forces, including service by a member of the National Guard or Reserve, on active duty, active duty for training, or full-time National Guard duty under federal authority for a period of more than 30 consecutive days under a call or order to active duty of more than 30 consecutive days” (ED 34 C.F.R. 668.18).

Students who withdraw from the University for military service during the course of a term or session are eligible for a 100% refund of tuition and fees. Room and board expenses will be prorated based on the official date of withdrawal.

Students must supply a copy of military orders to be eligible for any tuition, fees, or room and board adjustments. Students receiving financial aid will be subject to the refund policies as provided by the federal or state agency sponsoring the aid. Department of Defense Military Tuition Assistance and Veteran’s Education Benefits will be returned to the government agency as required.

Students who have to withdraw from the University after the add/drop deadline will receive a grade of W or I, depending on the amount of coursework completed and the expected length of the absence.
