Palmer earns 2015 Military Friendly Schools® designation
Palmer College of Chiropractic has again been selected by Victory Media, publishers of G.I. Jobs magazine, as one of an elite group of Military Friendly Schools® for 2015. This is the fourth consecutive year Palmer has earned this honor, which places it in the top 20 percent of colleges and universities in the country that are doing the most to support military-service members, veterans and spouses to help ensure their success in higher education.

See the list and Palmer's profile at http://militaryfriendly.com/school-list.

Palmer earned rights to the coveted Military Friendly Schools® trademarked designation via qualifying scores from a rigorous survey assessment. Among other practices supporting military members, veterans and their families, Palmer is a full participant in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program offered by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

This means that eligible U.S. veterans enrolled, or about to enroll, at any of Palmer's three campuses can have up to 100 percent of their out-of-pocket tuition and fees covered for one year. Eligible students are able to re-apply for subsequent years of their education.

Additionally, active-duty military personnel, qualified veterans and their families are given free chiropractic care at Palmer Chiropractic Clinics. In 2013, care for active-duty military, veterans and family members totaled 10,000 patient visits.

Avoid overdue Library fines-plus additional fees and delays in registration. San Jose Campus branch manager librarian Roseann Erwin reminds students to check their Palmer email frequently. In addition to system-generated "courtesy notices" (sent when checked-out Library items are three days from their "due date"), you will also receive "overdue" notices as well as fine totals for late materials. Failure to settle fines in a timely manner will delay your registration status. The Library submits a quarterly "holds" list to the Registrar with the names of students who have outstanding fines or fees, which restricts your ability to register for classes, until the outstanding fines and fees have been paid. Avoid any inconvenient delays-pay your outstanding Library fees today. If you have any questions, see Roseann in the Library.

Students can renew books via the Palmer web page. Go to "www.palmer.edu" and choose "Libraries" under the Academic listing section of the front page, and then click on "Catalog/Databases" from the menu options on the left side of the page. Once you are in the WEST catalog, use the log-in feature on the upper-right portion of the page. For "User ID" enter the barcode number on your Palmer student ID card, or your matriculation number. Your password is "changeme" until you've created your own password. Once you've established an account, you will see the online renewal option.

If you have any questions regarding the online renewal process, please see Roseann Erwin, San Jose Campus branch manager librarian.
