Time Off Request Form

  • If students are going to be out of town over a Sunday or a Wednesday service, they are required to fill out the Time-Off Request Form two weeks prior to the date they are requesting off. If a request does not extend over a Sunday or a Wednesday, students will still be required to fill out a form 72 hours prior to the date they are requesting to leave. James River College will not honor any time-off requests that fall on dates of events that the student body is required to serve. Students who choose to stay off-campus with family or close friends, who live in the area, must first notify and receive permission from their RA and/or RA on-call in advance. They do NOT need a time-off request. James River College has the right to deny a time-off request.
