Active duty and military veterans will be able to register early for Lamar University classes beginning with the May Mini, Summer and Fall 2013 terms.

“We wanted to honor our service members for their service and dedication to our country and make them feel welcome,” said Norma Cumbaa, coordinator of veterans affairs.

Additionally, early registration will make it easier for military personnel and veterans to ensure that they are able to enroll in classes required for their degree programs during the times and terms they find most convenient.

Active duty military and veterans have been added to the “special populations” category for priority registration. Registration for special populations – which also includes athletes, honors students, seniors and students with disabilities – begins Tuesday, April 9.

Veterans who are enrolled at Lamar University but who are not using veterans benefits to pay for their education should bring a copy of their DD 214 Member 4 to the Office of Veterans Affairs in Wimberly 101 to take advantage of priority registration.

Open registration for all current students will begin Tuesday, April 16, for May mini, summer and fall classes.

The May mini-session will run from May 17 to June 4.

Four summer sessions will be offered. Early Summer (Summer I) will be June 5 to July 10. Late Summer (Summer II) will be July 11 to Aug. 14. Full Summer (Summer III) will be June 5 to Aug. 14. Mid Summer (Summer IV) will be June 19 to July 24.

Fall classes will begin Aug. 26.
