Called to Serve

Palo Alto University is committed to providing seamless transitions for students who are recalled for military service and their return to the university after deployment.  We will ensure students do not face an academic disadvantage as a result of being called to national or international service. When a student (or family member) receives recall orders to active duty or orders to deploy, the student can withdraw from the university with a 100% refund and without financial penalty.

If classes are in session at the time of activation, each case will be individually evaluated with the student’s professors to determine the best option for the student. The university will make every effort to restore students returning from national and military service to the status as they held prior to their departure.
