UAFS Policy on Business Conduct and Compliance in Admitting, Educating, Advising and Placing Veteran and Military Students
UAFS will treat veteran and military students with respect and dignity in all of its relationships. Administrative unit directors, along with the Coordinator of Veteran's Aid and Benefits, will seek out information specific to this population to be sure of the most recent knowledge on benefits, rights, credit transfer, and special exemptions for those called up or otherwise obligated militarily will be employed.
Admissions and the Registrar's Office will be knowledgeable concerning the transfer of credits, campus veteran's organizations, and both on and off-campus resources such as the UAFS Veteran's Resource Center and the local VA Clinic. Admissions staff adheres to the National Association for College Admission Counseling guide to ethical practice in college admission which requires transparency in information, marketing, and presenting options. The guidelines also disallow financial benefits or bonuses being offered or renumerated to Admissions Advisors for meeting enrollment quotas.
Advising will be well-versed in both general academic programs and the Adult Degree Completer Programs. Policies governing students' military obligations and the university's academic and financial responses will be well-publicized. The UAFS Career Center will consider how to connect military and veteran students with promising career opportunities.
UAFS does not condone or utilize high pressure recruiting tactics with prospective students.
Should you have any questions please contact the UAFS Veterans Certifying Official, Heather Chance.
UAFS Policy on Military Students Spouses and Dependents Who Move in View of Military Obligations
A current student at UAFS who is the spouse or dependent of a current Military member and must move because of documented and required relocation or deployment will get special consideration in the refund appeal process for any out-of-pocket expenses for courses that cannot be completed.
