The New Jersey National Guard is activating units to support the State's response to COVID-19. This includes some Kean University students from our different locations (Union, Ocean, Skylands and Online). If a Guard member is activated, they will be sent orders from their respective units. These orders will need to be presented to each professor to help support the continuation of remote education to every extent possible. Faculty are encouraged to work with each Guard member on an individual basis, as some Guard members will require additional support. Depending on the length of time a Guard member is on active duty, an incomplete or other accommodations available through the Office of the Registrar may become necessary. The Office of Veteran Student Services is also encouraging all veterans. active military and their dependents at Kean to register for both Summer and Fall 2020, as appropriate and possible depending on their military and life obligations. Please feel free to contact the Office of Veteran Student Services by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or requests for additional information, support, and resources.
