Service Member Readmission


Studio School complies with readmission requirements for service members set forth in the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) section 487 and its implementing regulations (34 CFR § 668.18). This 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.

Service members must give notice (written or oral) to the Registrar’s Office prior to their absence from Studio School. The Registrar will provide additional information regarding how the absence/withdrawal will be treated in the service member’s academic record. The service member is also encouraged to meet with the Office of Financial Aid as well to receive information regarding the effect of the absence on the service member’s student financial assistance. Upon returning, service members should notify the Registrar’s Office of their intent to return, to ensure that they stay within the time for readmission set forth in the applicable regulations, or Studio School policy in effect at the time readmission is sought.

Wherever possible, the most lenient readmission time period will be effective.

Pursuant to applicable law, and in limited circumstance, readmission may not be available.
