Only classes under your declared major can be certified, so if necessary complete a change of major form.

6. Register for Classes

Students register for courses online through the mySUU portal. After registration, contact the Veterans Center.

7. Apply for Residency

Residency is granted to veteran dependent students but they must complete the residency application through the admissions office.

8. Make any changes?

Anytime you make any registration changes, drop, or add; notify the Veterans Center.


ADVISORY: Plan your registration carefully

Each time you Drop/Add you reset the VA certification process to begin again, which restarts the VA 4-6 week processing time and delays the arrival of your money!
