Colleges say they are veteran friendly, yet have staff members such as professors that make it so difficult? This is the last college class I am taking, October is a Commercial
Dive Academy. The summer classes
were a bridge for me to keep income
from the GI Bill as they will no longer pay during summer or winter break. My professor writes an email
stating that chapter 1-3 in should be read in all three books
by the first day. Fair enough.. Anyone not having a book the first day will start with a C.. okay.. More than one absence and you will be dropped, no excuses. I replied stating that my VA appointments were made 3 months ago, one was 6 and that there is no way I can miss them and was there away we could work around the obstacle. His reply simply stated no, Im sorry. No excuses means no excuses and if you arent serious about my class, you should withdraw immediately and rethink your college career.
I understand they put up with alot of excuses, but I even offered to show him a copy of my appointments from the VA and he still refused. So basically I am left with 3 business days to switch classes
which would work if ANY classes were open, which they are not. Now I am dead in the water
and since i cannot attend class for August, I will lose almost 2 grand in cost of living allowance for the month which is very substantial to me given that covers my rent, utilities and a few other bills on top of a newborn baby. I dont expect the world from these professors, but it would be nice for a little understanding.
