Policy Regarding Students Called to Military Duty

Tuition Refund

Students who are members of the National Guard or Reserves and have been ordered to active military duty will be provided a full refund of tuition and fees or will be provided a credit to be used against future terms. The adjustment of tuition will be made on an individual student basis, taking into consideration the date of withdrawal and the source of the student’s funding. All students who have to withdraw due to military call-up should be referred to the Business Office to ensure that all adjustments can be made to the appropriate program and through the appropriate college offices. If you have questions regarding the refund policy, please contact the Business Office at (864) 941-8322.


Students or their families will need to coordinate any return of books through the Campus Shop manager. Book refunds will be based on the condition of the books returned.

Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress

The term in which the student is withdrawing will not count against the maximum allowable terms for that program. The student’s file will be noted with the term affected by the military call-up. This term of withdrawal will be waived in monitoring the Title IV Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress. 


Students called to military service in the middle of a term will be awarded the non-punitive grade of W. If the call to duty is near the end of the term, and the student has completed most of the course objectives, it is the instructor’s discretion to award a grade of A, B, C or D rather than a W.
