Military Student Policies




  • Active duty members, reserve and national guard members who have been called to active duty of any branch of the U.S. military, or who have been or are deployed, are eligible to drop from any or all classes with full tuition refund. Those members who wish to drop classes must provide copies of orders or a signed letter from their education office or command element to the Office of Student Services. The Office of Student Services will verify that the dates of the deployment conflict with the course schedule. The deployment dates must fall within the start and end dates of the course or courses.
  • Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU) utilizes the American Council on Education (ACE) recommendations and university transferability guidelines to assess transfer credit for U.S. military service and training for undergraduate students. No transfer credit is awarded for vocational certificate category ACE recommendations or duplicative credit. 

    Official Military credit evaluation is completed only after a student serving on active duty, the National Guard or Reserves, or veteran separated under honorable conditions has been fully admitted to the University and has submitted all required documentation. 

    Military Experience (ME), as documented on the JST transcript, as well as coursework on the JST transcript, will be awarded credit based on ACE recommendations and university transferability guidelines.

    Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) credit is viewed and accepted as transfer credit in the same manner consistent with IWU policies for regionally accredited colleges and universities.

    IWU will review all JST/CCAF military credits and other regionally accredited transfer credits, and/or CLEP/DSST credits that meet IWU core requirements, and apply credits to the degree program as appropriate.

    Indiana Wesleyan University provides an option for obtaining credit through experiences where college level learning has taken place, but was gained outside of the traditional college classroom setting called Prior Learning Assessment (PLA). PLA options are evaluated through the Office of Student Services.

  • IWU, being an Air Force recognized Air University – Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC) approved university, will also accept an earned CCAF degree with the guarantee that the student can complete the following baccalaureate degree programs in no more than the credit maximums identified in the chart below.

  • The Higher Education Opportunity Act, enacted on August 13, 2008, states that a university may not deny admission or readmission to a service member for reasons relating to that service. The service member qualifies if the school is given notice of absence for service, the cumulative length of absence does not exceed five years, and the student gives notice of his or her intent to return.

    Indiana Wesleyan University complies with this act in accordance with the following:

    Academic:

    • Students are not required to reapply and are not charged a readmission fee upon return.
    • Students are readmitted at the same academic status (program enrollment status, number of completed credit hours, academic standing) before deployment. Students may return under the catalog that was in effect before deployment. Student may find differences in their programs or the catalog if the programs are no longer offered, or changes have occurred due to external accrediting bodies, licensing board or other external agencies.
    • Leave time does not count toward the total time required to earn the degree.
    • Students will be promptly readmitted in the next class or classes in a program, will qualify for priority/early registration, and may not be denied re-enrollment in a class based on class size.

    Financial:
    Students are required to complete a Military Leave of Absence Request. When the request is approved, students’ accounts will be adjusted as necessary.

    Financial Aid:
    Indiana Wesleyan University is committed to assisting military students in navigating the impact that active duty will have on financial aid. It is important that each student have conversation with the Financial Aid office to ensure proper paperwork and processes are covered as it relates to a leave of absence.
    Students with federal financial aid, federal loan obligations, or military tuition assistance must contact their lenders and/or the military education office to ascertain their loan repayment status or repayment of tuition assistance during the leave of absence.
