Note to those Veterans Called to Active Duty: Refunds, Credits, and Reinstatement as a Result of Military Service

Tuition and Required Fees: should an enrolled student be ordered to active duty (for reservists) or be mobilized (active military) after the census date, he/she should request to be withdrawn and may elect to be deleted from the registration file and be awarded a full refund or to be administratively withdrawn with no refund and assigned a grade of “W”.  Students must contact the Admissions Office and supply his/her name, student identification number, military orders, and request for type of withdrawal.

Academic Credits and Grades: Students who are called to active duty or are mobilized will have the opportunity to receive an incomplete grade ("I") until released from active duty (for reservists) or mobilization (for active military personnel).  All course requirements shall be completed within one year from the date of release from active duty or mobilization.  Students may also be given the option of taking their examinations prior to regularly scheduled times.

Reinstatement: Students who are called to active duty or are mobilized may be reinstated in the same programs of study without having to re-apply for admission if they return to DCC after a cumulative absence of not more than five years so long as the student provides notice of intent to return to the Admissions Office not later than three years after the completion of the period of service.

Academic Residency Requirement for Active Duty Service Members
Danville Community College limits academic residency to no more than twenty-five percent of the degree requirements for all associate degrees for active-duty service members. Academic residency can be completed at any time while active-duty service members are enrolled. Reservists and National Guardsmen on active-duty are covered in the same manner.
