Any student of Pearl River Community College who is a member of any component of the armed forces of the United States and who is placed on active duty status will be allowed to withdraw from the College.


Any student who withdraws from the College under this policy will not receive any grades. The student record will show evidence of the withdrawal documentation on file.

Any student who has completed at least 3/4 of the semester and is in good standing with the College, and who needs to only take the final examination to complete the semester, has the option to leave the College pursuant to this policy, without his class standing affected, and without refund of any of the above fees or tuition. However, within the ninety (90) days after release from active duty, the student must make arrangements to take the final examination. The score on the final exam, the work done prior to leaving and the unfinished semester’s work will constitute the student’s final grade.
