BANGOR — The University of Maine System is rolling out rules for students who’re called up to military service.
The new policy covers academic accommodations, tuition and housing rebates, and re-admission for students who are called up to active duty. It calls for a full tuition waiver for Maine National Guard members, and guarantees spouses and dependents aren’t evicted during a mobilization.
Chancellor Dannel Malloy said the new policy highlights the ways the system will accommodate and support students when their military service interrupts their education.
