Veterans and active duty military students are eligible for priority registration but it is not automatic.
To ensure you get priority registrations, you must submit a copy of your DD214 (veterans) or your military ID and orders (active duty and reservists) to the Admissions & Records office. Call the VRC and we can help you do that.
When are you eligible to register? Check your student portal, Register/Pay tab, click "View Registration Appointment"
