Students called into Active Military Service

Because of the recent deployment of troops and the military calling reservists into active duty, some students may be wondering about refunds if they are called. The following is from the Texas Education Code.

From the Texas Education Code:
54.006 Refund of Tuition and Fees
reads in part:

(f) Beginning with the summer semester of 1990, if a student withdraws from an institution of higher education because the student is called to active military service, the institution, at the student's option, shall:

(1) refund the tuition and fees paid by the student for the semester in which the student withdraws;

(2) grant a student, who is eligible under the institution's guidelines, an incomplete grade in all courses by designating "withdrawn-military" on the student's transcript; or

(3) as determined by the instructor, assign an appropriate final grade or credit to a student who has satisfactorily completed a substantial amount of coursework and who has demonstrated sufficient mastery of the course material.

This applies to students who are enrolled in non-credit classes as well as those who are enrolled in credit classes.
