Withdrawal When Called to Active Duty in the Armed Services

Valparaiso University students who are called to active duty in the armed services will be granted a 100% tuition adjustment for the session in which they were deployed, regardless of the date they were activated. To receive this tuition adjustment, the student must present the Graduate School with a copy of the deployment orders. If a student is called to duty after the last day to drop without a "W", the student will receive "W"s on the transcript.
