Where college students always exempted from the Vietnam draft?

No, college students were not automatically exempted from the Vietnam draft. Initially, they were deferred from the draft while enrolled in college, but this changed in 1969 when the deferment policy ended and all men, including college students, became eligible for the draft. However, some college students were able to receive deferments based on certain circumstances, such as enrolling in specific programs or maintaining a certain GPA.

Some young Mormon men were allowed temporary deferments so that they could serve as missionaries, but once their two year mission service was over, they were again entered into the draft.
