Academic Support

Priority Registration

In appreciation of your service, all veterans and service members can take advantage of priority registration. Priority registration is the first week of each registration period where select students can secure spots in classes before all students can register. See the academic calendar for priority registration dates. As always, do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.

Military Honor Cords

Veterans can choose to wear a red, white, and blue honor cord as part of their academic regalia for the commencement ceremony.  This cord signifies a veteran's service in the US Armed Forces. Walsh College is honored to provide these cords to veterans or current service members as a small thank you and form of recognition.

Questions about these cords can be directed to Patrick Forystek
