If you're a current or former member of the military, you may be eligible for special registration considerations as a UCR student, including priority registration.
UCR offers Priority Enrollment to all veterans and members of the military beginning with the second quarter of enrollment. This will happen automatically if you have visited Financial Aid to request U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs educational benefits. Otherwise, please contact our office to discuss the documentation needed to initiate Priority Enrollment. Then, watch your student web mail for notification of your course enrollment date.
Take a break, study, or visit with friends in the Veterans' Lounge! Enjoy a hot beverage from the K-Cup coffee machine. Relax in comfy chairs with footrests. Use the extra outlets to charge your phone and laptop. The Veterans' Lounge is located in 125 Costo Hall, and is open 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
This plan allows you to pay your quarterly enrollment fees in three monthly installments. You can apply on Growl up to the fee payment deadline. For further information, visit Student Business Services. As a veteran or member of the military, you may be exempted from the $25 processing fee and the first late fee ($50). Waiver of the application fee and first late fee will happen automatically if you were certified for U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs educational benefits through Financial Aid. For questions, please contact us.
