Priority registration groups

**Refer to the University Catalog, Academic Regulations for details on priority and scheduling of registration. Additionally, in accordance with the Assembly Bill 2133 and PL 115-48, California resident veterans, or those serving on active duty or in the National Guard or Reserve attending public colleges and universities are granted priority registration for classes while they are enrolled at Humboldt State University. At Humboldt State student veterans, active duty, and National Guard and Reservists have priority registration for their first term and every fall, spring and summer term until graduation, regardless of the time from separation to enrollment at Humboldt State University.  Eligible HSU students must provide proof of service (i.e. a DD-214 or current enlistment contract) to Veterans Enrollment and Transition Services. Priority registration is assigned at the earliest window of the applicable registration period.

Priority registration for a student’s first term is contingent on time of matriculation to HSU, and the orientation and advising session(s) available.
