West Virginia University gives priority registration to student veterans and dependents that are receiving VA Educational Benefits. By registering on the first day general registration is open you will have more options in choosing courses to meet your degree requirements and personal schedule.
- Note: If you are receiving VA Educational Benefits (G.I. Bill) you will have a registration hold that will be lifted on the priority registration date allowing you to schedule your courses. The hold will reapply once the registration period is over.
The 2,500 square-foot Veteran and Military Support headquarters will serve as a welcoming space and support center for student veterans, armed forces personnel and dependents of current and former military service members.
