Priority Registration for Student Veterans and Dependents
The University of Utah offers priority registration to all students veterans and any dependent using VA educational benefits (Ch. 33 or Ch. 35). This will allow veterans and their dependents to be among the first students to register each semester.
If you are a veteran using VA education benefits (Ch. 30, Ch. 33, Ch. 1606, Ch. 31), you will automatically be granted priority registration when you turn in your VA education benefits paperwork to our office.
If you are a dependent of a veteran AND using VA education benefits (Ch. 33 or Ch. 35), you will automatically be granted priority registration when you turn in your VA education benefits paperwork to our office. Note: Priority registration for dependents is only available to students using VA education benefits.
If you are a veteran NOT using VA education benefits, you can still receive priority registration by following the directions below:
To request veteran priority registration, you are required to log into CIS and submit one of the following documents to the University of Utah as proof of veteran status:
- DD-214 or NGB66
- Current Active Duty Letter
- Official Letter
- Military ID Card
- Other Official Documentation
To upload a document for priority registration, log into CIS, click on your "student profile" tile on your Student Homepage, and click on the “Are you a veteran?” link.
You will need to self-identify as a veteran by clicking on the checkbox, then you can click the upload documentation button to choose the file you wish to upload. Once you have uploaded the document, make sure you click the “Save” button.
Once we have reviewed your request, we will send you a confirmation email (UMail) to let you know if you’ve been granted priority registration and which semester it will begin. Once you have been granted priority registration, you will continue to receive it each semester as long as you are enrolled at the University of Utah.
