Veterans and military personnel should request a copy of their Joint Services Transcript be sent to Longwood’s Office of the Registrar. Determination of transfer credit of non-correspondence service schools will be made by the department or program chair using the American Council on Education’s Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services. No more than 30 credits may be transferred in from a Joint Services Transcript.
In general, credits are accepted from institutions that are accredited by the appropriate regional accreditation agency if you earned a grade of “C” or better in the class and they are comparable to courses offered at Longwood. Please visit the Registrar’s webpage for further information.
Military service (such as Reserve or National Guard drills) is an excused class absence per Longwood’s Academic Regulations.
It is strongly recommended that you notify all of your instructors in advance to coordinate making up missed assignments. Some faculty may require you to notify the Dean of Students for approval.
Note that if you miss 25% of scheduled class meetings, an instructor has the right to assign a course grade of F, regardless if some or all of the absences were excused.
Longwood’s Academic Regulations permit current Longwood students who will not return to Longwood the next semester because of training or mobilization to request an End-of-Semester Temporary Leave. Likewise, current students who are unable to complete the current term due to military orders may request Mid-Semester Temporary Leave.
Temporary Leave ensures the cancellation of registered courses, tuition charges, current housing assignments, and other associated charges. It also allows you to maintain your myLongwood account and your registration time ticketing and to return to the university without having to re-apply.
Please note that the Office of Residence and Commuter Life will make every attempt to hold a housing assignment for a student on temporary leave.
Please follow these steps:
Note: Students who are granted temporary leave will still be considered withdrawn for financial aid purposes and may be subject to cancellation or proration of financial aid funds. Refunds will vary depending upon the date of approval.
