National Guard and Reserves

The University of Kentucky is proud of its many students who currently serve in the Guard or Reserve and understands the added demands that service can bring. The Veterans Resource Center (VRC) is here to help you be successful in both.

Anytime your service requires you to miss class, bring a copy of your orders to our office in room 2 Erikson Hall.  We will provide a letter to your professors validating your absence.  Currently, there is no official UK policy for short term absence due to military service.  The policy for withdrawal for military service can be found at LINK.  The more proactive you are with your professors the better things tend to go.

Upon your safe return we will ensure that you are re-enrolled with no hassles, penalties, or fees. We'll also assist you should you need any additional assistance to get re-acclimated to the campus.
