Military Leave of Absence (MLOA)
NICC provides reasonable accommodations for students who must be absent from class due to military obligations or required medical treatment for service-connected conditions.
In the case of military training or drill periods, the student will disclose the leave schedule, copy of unit training/activation/deployment orders issued by the Unit Commander to the instructor or the VA Certifying Official on either the Peosta or Calmar Campus as soon as the unit provides such documentation.
In the case of medical treatment, documentation of a VA appointment may be requested to validate the reason for the absence. Documentation should be provided directly to the instructor or through the VA Certifying Official on either the Peosta or Calmar Campus.
A copy of the full policy and procedure may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. You can also view our military leave of absence policy webinar for more information.
Students Called to Active Duty
NICC provides reasonable options for students called to active duty who are members of the Iowa National Guard or reserve forces of the United States and the spouses of such members if the members have dependent children when they are ordered into active duty. Students will be required to meet with the VA Certifying Official and submit a copy of their assignment orders or letters from their commanding officers. A copy of the full policy may be obtained from the Registrar's Office.
