SOU Syllabus Statement Regarding Service

Statement on Military and Other Forms of Active Service Duty


Pursuant to Oregon law, any student enrolled at a public university who is a member of
the military, state National Guard, or other federal or state service protected by ORS 352.293
who is ordered to active duty for more than 30 consecutive days has the right to request
accommodation for such service, subject to the conditions and requirements of applicable
Oregon law or regulation.  Such accommodations may include, but are not limited to, the right
to withdraw from a course without penalty, a grade of Incomplete and option to complete at a
later date once service has concluded, and/or the right to credit for any tuition and fees already
paid, depending on the student's status.

Any student enrolled at a public university who is a member of the military, state National
Guard, or other federal or state service protected by ORS 352.293 who is ordered to active duty
for fewer than 30 consecutive days and misses a course session, assignment, examination or
other course work due to serving on active duty or is receiving medical treatment for an injury
sustained on active duty has the right to request accommodation for their service or medical
treatment, subject to the conditions and requirements of applicable Oregon law or regulation.
Such accommodations may include, but are not limited to, the right to submit any missed
examination, assignment or other course requirement upon completion of service or
treatment; and/or the right to have a course grade assigned without submitting missed
assignment or examinations, should the instructor determine that sufficient work has been
assessed for the determination of a grade.

Any student who expects to be called for active duty should contact instructors as soon as
possible to discuss accommodations.
