Clover Park Technical College is pleased to allow priority registration as defined by RCW 28B.15.621 section 7b to eligible veterans and National Guard members who are continuing, returning or new admitted students.
RCW 28B.15.621 section 7b (HB 1109) defines an eligible veteran as follows:
"Eligible veteran or national guard member" means a Washington domiciliary who was an active or reserve member of the United States military or naval forces, or a national guard member called to active duty, who served in active federal service, under either Title 10 or Title 32 of the United States Code, in a war or conflict fought on foreign soil or in international waters or in another location in support of those serving on foreign soil or in international waters, and if discharged from service, has received an honorable discharge.”
Priority registration per this law is defined as:
“Veterans continuing in their program of study will have priority registration over non-veteran continuing students. Registration for this group will be during the special population priority registration, usually the first two days of registration.”
