Preferential Registration for Veterans
Act 46 of 2014 requires public institutions of higher education in Pennsylvania to provide veteran students, as defined in the Act, with preference in course scheduling. Non-compliance may be reported to the Pennsylvania Department of Education by submitting the Higher Education Student Complaint form found at www.education.state.pa.us.
A veteran student:
- has served in the United States Armed Forces, including a reserve component and National Guard
- was discharged or released from such service under conditions other than dishonorable
- has been admitted to Delaware County Community College
- resides in Pennsylvania while enrolled at the College
Course scheduling preference means that veteran students are able tostart registering for courses sooner than students with the same class standing.The course schedule is available on the College’swebsite (www.dccc.edu) and on DelaGATE inadvance of the start of registration.
At Delaware County Community College veteran students will be able to register for courses on the two business days before formal registration for Fall and Spring courses begin. An email will be sent to identified veteran students indicating the dates, times and campus locations at Marple and branch campusesfor priority advisement and registration. Veteran students must bring proof of service.
This policy will be posted in the Admissions, Financial Aid, and Campus Life Offices,at branch campus student affairs areasand other offices providing veterans services. It will also be on the College Website, in the online catalog and student handbook, and advising materials distributed to students and advisors before registration begins for fall and spring.The point of contact for information about preferential registration for Veteran Students is Betty Brown, Associate Dean for Student Success: firstname.lastname@example.org 610-359-5320.
