Military Leave Policy
West Virginia University is supportive of the national and local import of the uniformed services, and of its employees’ contributions to these efforts. Therefore, eligible employees when engaged in voluntary or involuntary, active or inactive duty by order of a competent authority will be facilitated in accordance with this policy and applicable procedures in these efforts. This policy applies to all full-time and part-time University employees, including those on the regional campuses, who are members of the United States uniformed services (Armed Forces, National Guard, Reserves, Public Health Service, or other categories of persons designated by the President or other properly designated federal authority in time of war or emergency).
West Virginia University Undergraduate Catalog states: “Students entering the armed services of the United States may be granted full refund of refundable fees (but no course credit) if the call comes before the end of the first three-fourths of the semester. If the call comes after that, full credit for courses may be granted if the student has passing grades at the time of departure.”
