Policy for Students called to Military Duty

Any University of Rio Grande and Rio Grande Community College student called to military service will not be academically or financially penalized.

Rio Grande will work with currently enrolled students to allow them to take an “I” (Incomplete) if they need to complete

course requirements after the end of the term. Students should work with their advisors, faculty members, and Academic Affairs staff in the event they are called away into military service.

If an “incomplete” grade is not an option for a student, Rio Grande will review the academic status of each affected student to gain an administrative withdrawal.

A withdrawal on a student’s record will be reviewed by the Financial Aid and Business Offices on a case by case basis to assure that no student called to military duty will be financially penalized as a result of military responsibilities.
