Army Reserve Duty Coordination Committee (Valtam)
Students called to army reserve duty during the academic year and the final examination period may submit a request to defer, shorten, cancel or apportion their reserve duty, or exemption from examination dates.
Students who meet the Valtam eligibility criteria must inform their army units of their eligibility at the beginning of each semester. A letter of eligibility may be obtained from the Registration Center and must be presented in person or mailed to the army unit.
Prior to submitting a Valtam request, students are urged to make an effort to coordinate their reserve duty dates with their army units. If the duty period extends beyond the period stated in the IDF regulations, the student should contact the army unit to request a change in the reserve duty recruitment order.
