Are you a....

  • veteran
  • active or reserve service member
  • dependent receiving VA Education Benefits

Then you are eligible for priority registration!  You'll be able to register for classes with the first group of students each term. Priority registration helps you enroll in required classes before they fill up. For more about priority registration, see When to Register.

How do I get priority registration?

If you're using VA education benefits, you'll automatically get priority registration. You don't need to do anything else.  Family members using VA education benefits also automatically get priority.

If you're not using education benefits, you must bring proof of veteran status to an Enrollment Services Office.  Once your ID is checked, you'll have priority for all future terms at PCC.  You only need to show your ID one time to remain eligible.

What is acceptable documentation?

If you have any questions about your ID or you need help getting acceptable ID, please contact one of our Veterans Resource Centers - see Veteran Resources.
