Veterans’ Priority Policy for Workforce Investment Act Funded Programs

If the Health Sciences Division has the opportunity to enroll students into the Health Information Technology Program using Workforce Investment Act (WIA) funds, all eligible veterans and spouses who have met the requirements for admission to Cypress College will be admitted into available WIA-funded HIT Program classes before any non-veteran applicants.

"Veterans" refers to those who have performed service in the active military, naval, or air service, and discharged under conditions other than dishonorable. Active service includes full-time duty in the National Guard. An "eligible spouse" includes the spouse or widow/er of a Veteran that meets these criteria. If you qualify for this Veteran’s priority, please indicate this information on Health Information Technology Program Personal Data Sheet.
