What do I do if I am called to active-duty?
If a student is involuntarily called to active military duty and needs to withdraw from all university courses during the semester, they will need to do:
- Contact the Registrar's Office to complete a Semester Leave Form. If an exception to the University Academic/Financial Withdrawal policy is needed, please provide a copy of deployment orders with the form.
- Contact the School Certifying Official (SCO) at 207-780-5232 for assistance and information on how the deployment may affect your U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs educational benefits.
- Please note that withdrawing from school due to an involuntary active-duty deployment overseas should not adversely affect your ability to return to USM, when the deployment is completed.
