Policies for Military Students

To ensure compliance with career goals and voluntary education requirements, service members are strongly encouraged to speak with their installation or command educational services office or virtual advising center. Dallas College understands the challenges active-duty service members face when trying to carve out the time they need for school. If you are feeling that strain, talk to the online learning advisors about programs you can take advantage of to continue your education.

The Higher Education Relief Opportunities For Students (HEROES) Act of 2003 aims to ensure that service members receiving student aid are not affected because of their military status. Among those who are eligible for the HEROES Act of 2003 are active-duty military and members of the National Guard serving during a war, along with their spouses and dependents.

You should also speak to your advisor about getting a course extension should you not be able to complete any work for a class because of a military obligation.

Dallas College also has a course withdrawal process specifically for active-duty students.

Readmission of Service Members

Schools are obligated to readmit any service members who cannot attend school because of military service with the same academic status they had when they were last in school or when they were accepted into the school.

If you leave school because of military service and plan on returning, you need to inform the school. To do so, follow the readmission policies in the Federal Student Aid Handbook.
