Called to Active Duty

If you are called to active duty while attending courses at UTC, the following guidelines should be followed:

  1. Submit a copy of military orders to the Records Office, Center for Military and Veterans' Affairs, prior to leave, if possible. If you are unable to turn in your military orders prior to leave, please contact our office at your first opportunity.
  2. Notify all instructors that you've been called to active duty to discuss available options for course completion. For example, you might discuss the possibility of receiving incomplete(s), final grade/credit(s); or for a short leave of absence, and arrange to makeup coursework at a later date. 
  3. You also have the option to officially withdraw from course(s) or the University.

Our staff is available to assist you with any questions or concerns pertaining to UTC policy and procedures for students who are called to active duty.

*If you are using Department of Veterans Affairs or Tuition Assistance education benefits, please be sure to contact the VA School Certifying Official to discuss the potential financial impact.
