SPRING 2020 SEMESTER 

 

*Announcement* 

On Friday, February 28, 2020 the VETS Office will be closed from 1030 to 1245 for staff and student work study training. 

Please plan accordingly & communicate with your academic counselor to avoid any missed appointments. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

 

Important Information & Tips:

 

  • Priority Registration (for Veterans) for the Summer and Fall 2020 semester begins:

 

*Date TBD*

 

  • Priority Registration is available to veterans generally ~2-4 months prior to the first day of each new semester. For summer the priority registration date is generally 2-3 weeks prior to summer start date. 

 

  • You will receive an email to your CCSF email informing you of your priority registration date. If there are complications with receiving this email, please contact the VETS Office to confirm your priority registration status at (415) 239-3486.

 

  • For students who plan on using VA Education Benefits OR Vocational Rehabilitation for Summer 2020 & Fall 2020 classes, it is best if you come into the VETS Office on the Fall 2020 priority registration date to complete paperwork for BOTH semesters at once.
  • IF you are planning on ONLY using VA Education Benefits OR Vocational Rehabilitation for Fall 2020 feel free to come into the VETS Office on the Fall 2020 registration date.

Thank you!

 

Early completion of the New Student Matriculation Process (see column on the right for details) will help ensure a more timely payment of VA educational benefits.
