(CORPS LAB: Starting Fall 2017, only freshmen and sophomores need to complete this form for Corps Lab. Juniors and seniors who choose not to enroll in Corps Lab do not need to process this request form.)

The purpose of this form is to verify and document a cadet’s need to be excused from the mandatory attendance of Corps Lab and/or ProLab each semester (Cadet Regulations). There is no online option. If an excusal request is approved, the cadet is required to work with the Chain of Command to acquire any information and/or training that is missed by his/her absence from Corps Lab and/or ProLab. A cadet with an approved excusal from either Corps Lab or ProLab does not need to complete any graded assignments. This process does not excuse the cadet from participation in any and all related activities that are held at times outside of the Corps Lab and/or ProLab times. If a cadet needs to be excused from both a Corps Lab and a ProLab, he/she need only complete one form. If a cadet is excused from Corps Lab and/or Pro Lab it is possible that it will impact his/her eligibility to earn the Minor in Leadership Studies. For any questions about this form or the Minor, contact Dr. Humphrey at elaineh@vt.edu
