Military Academic Adjustments


DePaul University will make academic adjustments for students in the military consistent with all applicable legal requirements. This could include, for example: academic adjustments with a course, options regarding withdrawals or leaves of absence, and readmission at the conclusion of active duty. The details of any academic adjustments are dependent on the student's specific military orders.

Procedures Regarding Withdrawals and Leaves of Absence: Students who are in the military and called to active duty that interrupts their enrollment must complete the DePaul University Permanent Withdrawal/ Military Leave Request in Campus Connect. Students should indicate “military” on the application in Campus Connect. Upon their return, they will meet with an academic advisor to discuss resuming their studies.

Students are encouraged to contact the Veterans Student Affairs Office​ for more information about other specific procedures regarding withdrawals, leaves of absence, academic adjustments, and for information regarding other policies that may be particularly applicable to students in the military.
