Veterans Readmission Policy

Under the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, a student who is called to active duty in the United States Armed Forces or the National Guard or Reserve for a period of more than 30 days is entitled to reenroll in the same program, with the same enrollment status, number of credits, and academic standing as when he or she was last in attendance at Providence College.

Readmission is allowed provided the student meets the following requirements:

  • the cumulative length of the student’s absences from the college because of service on active duty does not exceed five years (which period may be extended in certain cases, as provided by statute);
  • the student notifies the college upon completion of service that he or she intends to reenroll at the college; and
  • the student has not been discharged from the Armed Forces with a dishonorable or bad-conduct discharge.
