Military Withdrawal

A student who is called to active duty to serve in the military while attending courses at Georgia Southern University is eligible to receive a Military Withdrawal. Students receiving this type of withdrawal are withdrawn as of the first day of University classes for the term. To submit a military withdrawal, the student needs to submit a Withdrawal Form.

The student MUST also provide the Associate Dean of Students for Military Affairs with a copy of his/her orders stating the date and place of deployment assigned by the military. The Associate Dean will not approve and process the withdrawal until the military orders are received.  Once the orders are validated by the Associate Dean of Students for Military Affairs, the Registrar will be notified and the student will be withdrawn from all classes which will be coded (WM – Withdrew Military).


The Military Withdrawal process is an all or nothing process.  You cannot be militarily withdrawn from one or two classes.  The Military Withdrawal withdraws the student from all of their classes.
