For active-duty servicemembers, and their spouses and college-age children, Sierra Nevada University limits the academic residency requirement to twenty-five percent or less of usual for all degrees. There are also no “final year” or “final semester” residency requirements for active-duty servicemembers and their families. The academic residency requirements can be completed at any time that active-duty servicemembers and their family members are enrolled.  Reservists and National Guardsmen on active duty are covered in the same manner.
