Veteran Students Course Scheduling
Act 46 of 2014 requires public institutions of higher education in Pennsylvania to provide veteran students, as defined in the Act, with preference course scheduling. Non-compliance may be reported to the Pennsylvania Department of Education by submitting the Higher Education Complaint form found at: www.education.pa.gov.
In accordance with the Pennsylvania “Higher Education Course Scheduling Preference for Veteran Student Act”, Slippery Rock University has broadened the definition of “veteran student” to include the following groups of students:
- Any student who “has served in the U.S. Armed Forces, including a reserve component and National Guard, and was discharged or released from such service under conditions other than dishonorable”.
- Any student currently serving in any branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, including a reserve component and National Guard.
- Any contracted SRU ROTC student.
Veterans receiving “course scheduling preference” will be assigned the first registration date and time within their respective class level… graduate, post-baccalaureate and undergraduate.
Students, who identify themselves as being "veterans", as defined above, will automatically receive their priority registration date and time on MySRU. For consideration of transfer credit for military education and occupational training, Veterans should submit a Joint Services Transcript (JST) or Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) transcript to the Transfer Admissions Office. A copy of the DD214 should be submitted to the Veterans Certifying Official.
