New Provisions for Military Personnel
NEW PROVISIONS FOR MILITARY PERSONNEL UNDER THE HIGHER EDUCATION OPPORTUNITY ACT (HEOA)
As long as the following conditions are met, Purchase College will readmit a student who has been on active-duty service in the Armed Forces (including Reserves and National Guard) with the same academic status as when the student last attended:
- The student gives advance notice (written or verbal) of the call to active duty or, upon seeking readmission, submits a written verification that such service was performed, requiring their absence.
- The absence from school for active duty does not exceed five years;
- The student submits a notification of intent to reenroll within three years after the completion of service or within two years after recovery from an illness or injury incurred during the service.
- The separation from service was not dishonorable.
For general information, including the application form for readmission, please refer to the Readmission page.
Effective for periods of enrollment on or after July 1, 2009, in-state tuition will continue to be provided to the service member, spouse, or dependent even after the member’s permanent duty station changes to a location outside New York, if they were granted in-state tuition previously under the provision for those in active duty in the state and they are continuously enrolled at Purchase College.
