Military Service Policy
Suffolk University recognizes and appreciates the service and challenges student service members or reservists may face when called to active service while they are enrolled students. As a result, Suffolk University will work with student service members and reservists on a case-by-case basis to address academic and financial considerations. Law student service members and reservists must contact the Law Dean of Students Office within one month of being called to duty (or as soon as possible thereafter) and must provide documentation of their call to service. The Law Dean of Students Office will work on the student’s behalf with campus departments (Academic Services, Student Account Services, Registrar, Financial Aid, Associate Deans, etc.) to arrange late course withdrawals, leaves of absence, exam postponements, University financial consideration and re-entry to academic programs, etc. Students are encouraged to view the University's webpage regarding veterans and active duty military.
Separate from Suffolk University action or assistance, student service members or reservists are subject to the rules and regulations established by the US Department of Education regarding financial aid and by regulations governing veteran‘s benefits.
