Employees on Military Leave
California State University campuses will continue to operate on a normal schedule, unless specifically directed otherwise, while the United States is at war with Iraq.
In addition, CSU Chancellor Charles B. Reed has sent to campus presidents the policies that pertain to students and employees called to military service. These provisions ensure that students called for military duty do not lose registration priority, academic credit, fees, or degree status.
"All campuses must guarantee that students have the flexibility to withdraw when called to military duty and re-enroll upon their return," Chancellor Reed said.
Campuses are authorized to approve a leave of absence for students forced to leave under unique circumstances beyond their control. The Leave of Absence Policy guarantees registration rights for subsequent terms without reapplying for admission. Students under the leave of absence policy may withdraw from courses throughout the term without restriction or penalty.
Students called to duty also will be provided a full refund of mandatory fees. Students and other reservists who have federal education loans will not be expected to make payments while on active duty.
Employees on active duty military leave receive a difference in pay salary supplement that makes up the difference between their military pay and their CSU pay for up to 360 calendar days until September 2003.
"We are monitoring the current military situation to determine if we need to extend the salary supplement under the difference in pay policy," Reed said.
