Veterans Readmission

LIM College complies with Readmission Requirements for Service Members as outlined in the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) sections 487 and 484(C).

The HEOA provides that an institution may not deny readmission to a service member of the uniformed services for reasons relating to that service. In addition, a student who is readmitted under this section must be readmitted with the same academic status as the student had when they last attended the institution. Academic status is defined by a student’s grade level and whether or not the student was in a degree/certificate or non-degree/certificate program at the time of separation.

This policy applies to service in the uniformed services (whether voluntary or involuntary), on active duty in the Armed Forces, including service as a member of the National Guard or Reserve, for a period of more than 30 days under a call or order to active duty of more than 30 days. LIM College will readmit such a student as long as the following conditions are met:

  • The student gives advance notice (written or verbal) of the call to active duty or, upon seeking readmission, submits a written verification that such service was performed, requiring their absence.
  • The absence from school for active duty does not exceed five years.
  • The student submits a notification of intent to re-enroll within three years after the completion of service or within two years after recovery from an illness or injury incurred during the service.
  • The separation from service was not dishonorable.

Students meeting the above requirements should consult the general LIM College readmission policy for details concerning current readmission procedures. Students not meeting the above requirements may reapply through regular LIM College readmission procedures.
