The Graduate School assists in promoting the general welfare of military-affiliated students, including service members and veterans, their spouses, and their dependent family members. When military personnel are called to duty and they or their family members must postpone studies, The Graduate School collaborates with each student to decide the best course of action in cases of deferral of admission, continuous enrollment/readmission, leave of absence, time limit to degree and related coursework on the plan of study, and any other related policies that may be relevant. Please consult with Veterans’ Services in the University Registrar’s Office, and please contact The Graduate School, (336) 334-5596, for individualized assistance specific to graduate programs.
