Deployment Information for Reservists
Deployment of Reservists
When you are called up to active duty, you put your personal life on hold. We know it's a difficult time. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to leave without worrying about your education and return when you're ready. Just like your family, we'll be here waiting for your return. The information below explains UC Riverside policies and designed to assist you. In addition, there are some links to resources and websites that will be useful to you during the transition to your deployment.
If you are in the armed services reserves and think you might be called to active service, consider preparing a full-University release authorization. The authorization gives your parents, spouse or friend access to your records and allows them to take action, such as withdrawing from the university, on your behalf.
The release authorization is intended to speed any bureaucratic processes that may present themselves while you're deployed. If you do not authorize a release, the University is fully committed to working with you to process actions "long distance" or after your release from service. If you have questions regarding the release authorization or how being moved to active duty will affect your enrollment status, contact the Registrar's Office at (951) 827-3402 or (951) 827-7284.

Today's military family faces a lifestyle that is comprised of frequent deployments,
which results in increased family separations. This often proves to be a stressful
challenge for military families. To assist the military's efforts to keep both troops
and their families prepared, there are several programs which support the readiness
of families. The information in this section will assist service members and their
families in preparing for and coping with deployments. This site contains family support
links for each of the services, as well as information for children, locating service
members and deployment entitlements.
