SUNY Broome complies with the regulations released by the Department of Education for readmission of returning service members to a program that was interrupted due to service obligation, 34 CFR 668.18 (a).
Service Members who are called to active duty or who are required to report for military service while enrolled at SUNY Broome Community College should present documentation of their orders to the Veterans and Military Affairs Office and/or the Registrar’s Office prior to leaving for duty. (Alternatively, at the time of readmission, Service members may submit documentation of military service that necessitated the student’s interruption from the school).
SUNY Broome has an open admissions policy. Service members will be re-admitted with the same academic status they held when last attending the school or accepted for admission to the school.
Every reasonable effort to enable the student to resume their program will be made. If such efforts are unsuccessful and it is determined the student is not prepared and unable to reenroll in the same academic program with the same academic status, or if placing the student in the program will place an undue hardship on the college, SUNY Broome is not required to readmit the student.
Returning Service Members who receive a dishonorable or bad conduct discharge from the Armed Forces (including the National Guard and Reserves) are not eligible for readmission under this policy. However, service members who receive dishonorable or bad conduct discharge may remain eligible for readmission even though they will not be entitled to the benefits outlined in this policy (pdf).
