NEW PROVISIONS FOR MILITARY PERSONNEL UNDER THE HIGHER EDUCATION OPPORTUNITY ACT (HEOA)

Readmission Policy
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 Readmission.

In-State Tuition
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.
