A student who is called to active duty to serve in the military while attending courses at Georgia Southern University is eligible to receive a Military Withdrawal. Students receiving this type of withdrawal are withdrawn as of the first day of University classes for the term. A 100% refund is issued. The student will receive “WM” grades for all courses that he/she enrolled in during the semester. The "WM" grades that are assigned will not affect the student's GPA. To process this type of withdrawal, the student needs to contact the Office of the Dean of Students at (912) 478-3326 or go online and submit a “Withdrawal Form.” The student will need to provide the Office of the Registrar with a copy of his/her orders stating the date and place of deployment assigned by the military. Military withdrawals are exempt from the Limited Withdrawal Policy.
