If You Are Called to Active Duty

What you need to do

Early in the semester:

If you are a main campus student, you need to contact either JenniferTrimmer at 325-4308 or Debbie Blevins at 325-1084. They will need a copy of your orders as soon as possible. You can fax them to 325-3639. They will withdraw you from your classes and notify the Bursar and Financial Aid.

If you are a student in OU Outreach Advanced Programs, Liberal Studies, Independent Study or Academic Programs, you need to contact R. William Jacobs II, va@ou.edu. He will need a copy of your orders as soon as possible. You can fax them to 325-7273. They will withdraw you from your classes and notify the Bursar and Financial Aid.

Mid to late semester:

If time allows, visit with each of your instructors to discuss your options.

The faculty and staff have been instructed by the Provost office to assist you in the disposition of your coursework. This may include early completion of courses, withdrawal or receipt of grades of Incomplete. Whatever your decision, you must then notify Jennifer Trimmer so she can counsel you on how it will impact your Montgomery GI Bill.

When you know the semester in which you will return:

We will do everything we can to get you back in classes as seamlessly as possible. You may go online to one.ou.edu at the appropriate time and enroll. If you have any stops, advising or otherwise, you may email Jennifer Trimmer at veterans@ou.edu and she will forward your email to the appropriate person.

If you are living in University Housing, you need to submit a release application and a copy of your orders. You should be released from your contract with no penalty. For more information, contact Kari at 325-2511.

If you have a parking permit, send the permit to Parking and Transportation, 731 Elm Avenue, Robertson Hall, Norman OK 73019. Parking and Transportation will credit your Bursar account. The Bursar will issue a refund if there are no other outstanding charges to your account. If you have any questions about this, contact Anita at 325-3311.

If you purchased your textbooks at any of the Norman campus area bookstores, the stores will give you a refund as long as you can present a receipt.

If you have checked out materials from the University Libraries, be sure they get returned.

If you need to change your address, go to one.ou.edu.
