In the case of a student called to active duty military service or change of orders due to military conflict within the semester, the student must contact the Office of the Registrar and provide a copy of military orders immediately. Students will have the option of withdrawing with a complete refund, withdrawal with a grade of “W”, or accepting incomplete grades to allow the student to complete the courses at a later date. Students are asked to notify UWF of their desired option. The transcripts of students who have contacted the Office of the Registrar as stated above and are subsequently withdrawn, awarded refunds, or given incomplete grades will be annotated with an appropriate statement indicating action taken was due to military active duty service. More UWF Military and Veteran’s Information.
