Suggested Military Student Syllabus Statement

If you are a student currently serving in the military (Active Duty, Guard, or Reserves) with the potential of being called to military service or training during the course of the semester, you are encouraged to contact your course instructor no later than the first week of class to discuss the class attendance policy.  The instructor may make accommodations for this absence or suggest that you take the course at another time.
