Re: Policy for Students Called to Active Duty
The following policy was approved by the Administrative Council in 1991 and will be followed for students who are called to active duty.
"A student who is called to active duty status in one of the US military services divisions will be given a 100% refund of instructional fees, general fees, and nonresident surcharge. Upon receipt of orders to report, the student should contact the college office in order to initiate the withdrawal process. A student receiving Veterans educational benefits should also notify the Veterans Certification Division, Office of the Registrar, in order for that office to complete required documents relating to those benefits.
If notification of active duty occurs late in the academic term such that the student and instructor(s) agree that a grade(s) can be assigned, or that a "P" (Pass) is appropriate, the student may elect to remain enrolled and receive the grade(s) and credit for the course(s). In such a case, no refund is necessary or appropriate.
A student who enlists in one of the divisions of the military service and who withdraws to do so will receive a refund according to the regular refund policy in effect at the time of withdrawal."
Please direct any questions you may receive on this policy to me.
