Student Veteran Policies

Deployments: A Leave of Absence policy exists for any student (veteran or non-veteran). If an enrolled service member is called to active duty (for deployment, training, etc.), they will be eligible to resume studies upon completion of their term of service. If deployed after the add/drop period for a given semester has ended, the college will work with the student and their professors to arrange for grades of incomplete, where possible. In cases where an incomplete grade is not possible, a non-punitive grade of “W” will be recorded.

MC fees: “There are no fees associated with the application for admission or for evaluation or transcribing of military or transfer credit, nor other types of credit for prior learning.” Contact Financial Aid for more information.

Transfer Credits: Marietta College accepts military transcripts for consideration of credit transfer as part of the admissions process. Applicants should submit official military transcripts and/or a DD-214 for review by the Registrar’s office, along with official transcripts from any prior institutions of higher education attended.
