FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
As many as 35 West Virginia University at Parkersburg students could be affected by a call-up of all remaining West Virginia Army National Guard members to help in dealing with flood clean-up efforts in the state.
The college has notified faculty that the call-up to the northern part of the state is expected to be short, lasting no more than two weeks if a unit from Kentucky can assist with Hurricane Ivan clean-up efforts, said Joseph Badgley, dean of academic affairs. Otherwise, college officials have been told the duty call may cover three weeks.
"We've advised our faculty of the situation and encouraged them to work with students to the extent possible as they make a decision to withdraw or try to remain in a class," Badgley noted.
Under college policy, students called to active duty before the end of the first three quarters of the semester are eligible for a full refund of refundable fees but no course credit.
