(State College) --Penn State University is going to allow military veterans using the GI Bill to schedule classes earlier than most of the student population.

The university says it would be making the change next year.

President Rodney Erickson says the university wants to ensure veterans can register for the classes they need, since there are a limited number of semesters they can get tuition assistance.

The benefits are set at three years. Under the new school policy, veterans will be able to register in September for the Spring 2014 semester.

Students will need to fill out a form to qualify for the priority. The university says there are about 3,500 veterans and active-duty personnel using their GI Bill the system.
