Priority Registration at UC Merced
Priority registration gives veteran students the opportunity to start registering for courses prior to their peers. All veteran students (not including dependents) are eligible for this benefit.
How do I get Priority Registration?
You are given priority registration if you are a veteran currently receiving Department of Veteran Affairs eduational benefits. This benefit can be applied from one semester to the next.
If you are a veteran but are not currently receiving educational benefits, you may still be eligible to receive priority registration. To get started you must contact our Veteran Certifying Official and submit proof of your military status.
