Registration and Priority
Register for classes the first day of the registration period
PCC offers priority registration for classes to all veterans and members of the military. You must present a copy of your DD214 or military ID to Admissions and Records and fulfill the requirements below.
The California Community Colleges Board of Governors approved changes that established system-wide enrollment priorities for all students.
New students who have completed college orientation, assessment and developed educational plans (EdPlans) as well as, continuing students in good standing who have not exceeded 100 units (not including units in basic English, Math or English as a Second Language) will now have priority over students who do not meet the criteria.
Students that are qualifying active-duty military and veterans in order to receive priority registration must:
- have completed orientation, assessment, and developed a student education plan with a PCC counselor
- have completed less than 100 degree applicable units
- or continuing students in good standing
Request Your Benefits Each Semester
Certification is not automatic. To have your certification submitted to the VA, you must register for classes, complete the Request for Benefits form and contact the Veterans Certifying Agent in Admissions and Records, L113 before the start of each semester. See Current Students for more information.
Report Any Changes
Always contact the PCC Veterans' Services Office to report any change in your enrollment. Changes such as Add/Drop or Withdrawals, switching courses, etc. need to be reported immediately so that students do not end up owing money back to the VA.
