Progression Interruption Due To Military Service

Students who are absent from Baptist College of Health Sciences (BCHS) due to required military service may be required to withdraw from enrollment. Such withdrawal will be in good standing, and a refund for that trimester will be made. Any refunds under this policy will adhere to Federal Financial Aid (Title IV) guidelines.

Students who are absent from Baptist College of Health Sciences for a limited period of time due to required military service may be allowed to make up any work missed with the approval of the appropriate academic dean. The decision of the Dean regarding make up work or withdrawal will be final.

Students under these guidelines will be allowed to reenroll in the program. Reenrollment must be within three years of the completion of service. Students will meet with the appropriate academic dean to develop new progression plans for their degree.

Students seeking reenrollment under this policy must submit notification of intent to reenroll to the Registrar prior to the term of planned attendance. Notification of intent to reenroll must be submitted to Baptist College no later than three years after completion of the period of service. The cumulative length of all absences from Baptist College for miliary service may not exceed five years.

Any student seeking reenrollment under this policy will be required to submit a copy of the official military orders requiring military service or a letter from the military units commanding officer delineating the dates of activation and release if the official orders are unavailable at the time of the student's request. This documentation will be made a part of the student's permanent record in the Registrar's Office.
