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 Students receiving this type of withdrawal are withdrawn as of the first day of University classes for the term.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 s/he 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 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 Policy Limiting Individual Course Withdrawals.
