Anyone have info on ROTC and consequences of being disenrolled? A friend's kid is being disenrolled as a college junior due to grades. The kid didn't pass a math course and was in the process of making it up through an extension online course, and then proceeded to fail a required science course last semester. The kid had a hearing and the verdict was not good. It appears that the student will have to pay back the whole scholarship (at an out of state public) which comes to over $50K. To stay at the school will require out of state tuition (high) or establishing residency. With a sub 2.5 GPA, transferring chances are poor.
One question is how long it takes for the military to contact you about paying back the scholarship. I have heard it can be a year or so before they give you a payment plan. Enlisting appears to be another option.
Any info is appreciated. The family is pretty devastated (yes, it's the kid's own fault, but it is still hard....).
