Veteran Priority Registration

NTC is honored to provide veterans and/or service members priority in registering for courses in accordance with the WI Service Member Priority Bill (AB 201).  Veterans need to provide documentation either through their DD214, Active Duty Orders, Notice of Basic Eligibility (DD2384) or DD256N to the college's Veterans Certifying Official prior to the priority registration dates to be eligible.  Please call 715.803.1252 if you are unsure if the college has the appropriate documentation on file.
Veterans do not need to be receiving veteran benefits to be eligible to enroll through the priority registration period.  Veteran spouses and children are not eligible for priority registration and will be able to enroll in courses at the normal registration time.  All financial or academic holds must be cleared before a student may register for courses.
Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) Grant Participants
A spouse of a Veteran who is a participant within the TAACCT grants awarded to NTC and meets the criteria below is also eligible for veteran priority registration.  An eligible spouse is defined as: (a) any person who died of a service connected disability; (b) any member of the Armed Forces serving on active duty who, at the time of application for the priority, is listed in one or more of the following categories and has been so listed for a total of more than 90 days: (i) missing in action; (ii) captured in line of duty by a hostile force; or (iii) forcibly detained or interned in line of duty by a foreign government or power; (c) any veteran who has a total disability resulting from a service-connected disability, as evaluated by the Department of Veterans Affairs; (d) any veteran who died while a disability, so evaluated was in existence.
