Military community students may find it difficult because of military driven commitments to follow the above policies verbatim. When military commitments, such as exercises, deployments, permanent change of station, etc., cause difficulties in following these policies, as a SOC consortium member and “Military Friendly” school, American Sentinel is committed to helping the student navigating academic difficulties and minimize administrative issues that would impede completion of a course or program when the military commitment causing the difficulty is ended. However, it is imperative the student communicate with the university as soon as possible through their course faculty member, student success advisor, or military advisor as soon as possible after the military situation is known. Depending on the situation, military documentation may be required to validate requests requiring significant deviation from normal policy. Timely communication with the school in some cases may eliminate or minimize financial obligations such as TA repayment of failed courses.
