Continuing Veteran/Dependent Students

Enrollment for classes through our Veteran Education Program is now closed for the Spring 2017 semester. Information for the Fall semester will be available in the upcoming months.

A continuing student is an eligible veteran/dependent who attended and successfully completes classes this past Fall 2016 semester at any of our four adult school sites.

If you have completed the total allowed semester(s) in each course, do not re-enroll in the same course, the VA does not pay for repeat courses or give extensions.

(Although Course names, instructors, and times may change in an individual course, course curriculum remains the same. Therefore, repeating the course is not allowed)

 

Enrollment Steps:

Step 1: Registration for classes

Registration will begin on Tuesday July 5th at 8 am and will be available at all 4 individual school site.

Browse our course catalog to see courses available for the Fall 2016 semester. Take note of the course times and location of the course of choice. The location of the course is the location you will go to for registration beginning July 5th.

Course registration is based on first come, first served basis. Once courses are full, registration for that class will end. There are no exceptions to this policy. We do not have waiting lists for our courses.

Per Veteran Administration, (Title 38 U.S.C. 3680A(d) and 38 CFR 21.4201), each individual program must meet VA regulations in respect to class counts. Therefore, to remain in compliance with this policy, each program will have a maximum cap of up to 85:15 ratio for Veteran student enrollment
