What do you do if you are in the Reserves or National Guard and get called to active duty or you are an Active Duty Military Member and you get deployed?

If you are called into active duty or get deployed, you should first speak to your instructor. Depending on many factors, there is a chance you my be able to complete your course remotely or receive and incomplete to finish your work in the near future. These options are on a case-by-case basis and require instructor and/or department consent.
Another option may be to file an Administrative Drop or Late Withdraw appeal, using the reason of "non-voluntary military activation" through the Question and Answer Center. Dropping or withdrawing from a course could impact your VA benefits, so contact Veteran's Services to discuss your options.
