Liberty University greatly appreciates your service and the sacrifices you make daily to secure our freedom. When you are faced with a deployment or unexpected duty, we have processes in place to assist you. If you find that your duty may have an impact on your academic progress, it is important that you contact us as soon as possible so that we may help you through this transition.
Below we have outlined the steps you need to take when you are notified of an upcoming deployment.
Review our Deployment Tips for Success for information on establishing a FERPA Pin number, setting up a Power of Attorney, and other helpful steps you can take to prepare for your deployment.
If you are currently enrolled in courses, you should let your professor(s) know about your situation as soon as possible. Our professors are aware of the issues that face military students and can often work with you by giving extensions or assigning work so you can complete the course while fulfilling your military obligation.
Review your Course Schedule for the semester and identify any possible scheduling conflicts. If you will be in class during the time you are going to be deployed, you may have the following options:
Special Note: Residential students that are able to complete the current semester but will not be able to attend the following semester due to deployment will need to contact the Student Advocate Office before deploying.
If changes to your enrollments are necessary, any military benefits you are using may need to be adjusted.
Upon your return, you will need to contact Liberty University to determine what steps are needed to continue your education. Online students should contact Academic Advising and Residential students should contact the Student Advocate Office Military contact listed below.
Student Advocate Office:
If you have broken enrollment in the program due to your deployment, we can have you reinstated under your original degree plan. Online students may email email@example.com and residential students may email firstname.lastname@example.org to request reinstatement into their program. Your deployment orders or other military documents should be submitted to verify your inactivity due to deployment.
We are here to assist you with resuming your education and using your military benefits. Please contact our office to see if any updated documentation is needed to ensure your benefits are posted to your account without delay. Residential students may visit our Military Student Liaison in-person for this assistance.
You may also want to join the Student Veterans Association (SVA). The mission of the SVA is to provide fellowship for student veterans, to support new student veterans in coordination with Liberty’s Military Affairs Office, and to create veteran-oriented Christian service opportunities. Visit www.liberty.edu/SVA or email email@example.com to get connected.
