National Guard Students Called to Active Military Service

NVC National Guard Students – THANK YOU for your service to our country.

We hope you know Texas Education Code requires colleges excuse a student from attending classes or other required activities (including exams) in order to participate in active military service.

Here ’s some info you need to know:

You can’t be penalized for absences (not to exceed 25% class meetings) and must be allowed to complete assignments/exams within a reasonable time.
If you withdraw from a class due to active military service, you can get refunded the tuition/fees; get an incomplete grade; or get a final grade if substantial amount of work has been completed.
If you withdraw from a class, due to active military service, you can be readmitted to the college within one year of completing military service, without requiring reapplication or charging a fee.
