The Request for Leniency process is used when you experience a short-term interruption to your program and/or ability to participate in your course due to your military commitments. This process is available to students who do not need or may not qualify for a Military Leave of Absence.
Military leniency allows you to continue with your coursework while you fulfill your military commitments. If your military commitments will affect your ability to meet an assignment deadline or may have major impact on your performance in a course, you may request that your instructor(s) consider offering extra time. Your instructor will determine how much time is acceptable.
To request a military leniency:
The Office of Military Services will email your instructor; however, the instructor will make the final decision to grant or deny the leniency request based on course requirements and your ability to make up the missed work.
