PLEASE NOTE: THE FOLLOWING POLICIES BECAME EFFECTIVE JUNE 2012
MEDICAL LEAVE Of ABSENCE may be granted through the Associate Dean’s Office in consultation with other campus offices and upon receipt of a statement by a student’s personal physician. If approved, a student will be awarded a W for all coursework. Before returning to campus, students must present medical and therapeutic assessments from appropriate professionals, not related to the student and or his/her family, concerning the students’ ability to return.
MILITARY CALL TO ACTIVE DUTY POLICY (MILITARY LEAVE OF ABSENCE)
Students will be allowed to withdraw without penalty from the College and receive 100% credit for tuition and fees (less any financial aid which the student may have received for the term) and a prorated refund of room and board charges upon presenting an original copy of their orders to the Registrar. Some financial aid programs cannot be refunded after a certain date; these financial aid adjustments are subject to program regulations.)
Alternatively, incomplete (I) grades in all classes, with no tuition and fee reimbursement, may be more appropriate when the withdrawal is near the end of the semester and incompletes are agreed to by the instructor(s) and the student and approved by the Registrar. However, if the student chooses to withdraw from only a portion of his/her classes and receive incompletes in the remaining classes, he/she would receive a partial reimbursement of tuition and fees only if the number of remaining credit hours is fewer than 12. In either of these alternative cases, the student will receive a prorated refund of room and board charges and be allowed to complete the course work according to the established policies of the College and the agreement with the instructor(s) involved.)
Before returning to campus, students must notify the Registrar in writing at least 30 days before their return. The right to use college facilities is suspended while the leave is in effect.
