A number of Utah State University students had to leave classrooms during fall quarter to respond to mobilization calls from military reserve units. USU's eight college deans last week announced policies that will help those students tie up loose ends, get tuition refunds or defer completion of classes until they can get back to campus.
Assistant Provost Blythe Ahlstrom said the deans "want to help students in this difficult time." Students may choose any of the following options:- Withdraw from school and receive a full tuition refund.
- Receive an incomplete for unfinished courses that, unlike regular incompletes, will not turn into an "F" automatically. The incomplete remains on the record as long as military service continues.
- Depending on the professor's evaluation, a student could receive full credit for a nearly completed course if work completed before call-up indicates sufficient understanding of the course material.
