Military Students Bill of Rights

All military student populations have basic rights to satisfactory college marketing, admissions, and student services practices, including the right to:

  • Accurate information about a school’s programs, requirements, accreditation, and its potential impact on course transferability.
  • Access basic college/university information and fees without disclosure of student personal information.
  • Educational planning and career guidance without high-pressure registration and enrollment efforts from institutions.
  • A clear and complete explanation of course/program enrollment procedures and all resulting financial obligations.
  • Explore, without coercion, all financial aid options before signing up for student loans or other financial assistance.
  • Accurate scholarship information, free of misleading "scholarship" offers based on military tuition assistance.
  • Appropriate academic screening and course placement based on student readiness.
  • Appropriate, accessible academic and student support services.
  • Clearly defined institutional “drop/add” and withdrawal policies and procedures including information about the impact of military duties (e.g., mobilization, activation, temporary duty assignments) on student's academic standing and financial responsibilities.
  • Clearly defined grievance/appeals processes.
