Military Syllabi Information

It is recommended the following statement be included in all faculty syllabi: 

“Students who have the potential to participate in military activities that will conflict with the course schedule, including training and deployment, should consult with faculty prior to registration for any course, but no later than the end of the first week of the term. At this time, the student should provide the instructor with a schedule of planned absences in order to allow the instructor to evaluate and advise the student on the possible impact of the absences. In the event military activities are not known until after the first week of classes, the student should consult with faculty as early as possible and provide the same information as outlined above.

In this course, the instructor will consider absences due to participation in military activities, verified by official orders or a letter from the student’s commander, to be excused absences. If, however, it appears that military obligations will impact the student’s ability to succeed in the course, the instructor may consult with Veteran and Military Affairs for additional assistance or advise the student to register for the course at another time, when they are more likely to be successful.”
