Readmission of Student who Withdraws to Perform Active Military Service

This section applies to students who withdraw from the University to perform active military service as a member of the United States armed forces or the Texas National Guard. Students requesting readmission within one year after being released from active military service will be readmitted to the University if they are eligible to register for classes. Upon readmission, the University shall:

  • Provide any financial assistance previously provided before the students' withdrawal, if students meet current eligibility requirements for the assistance, other than any requirement directly affected by their service, such as continuous enrollment or another similar timing requirement; and
  • Allow students the same academic status that they had before the withdrawal, including any course credit awarded

The University might adopt rules requiring reasonable proof from students regarding the fact and duration of their military service.
