Native American and Veteran’s Policies

Native American and Veteran’s Policies

Native American Preference Policy

SKC does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual identification, gender, age or disability, except as allowed by the Indian Preference provision of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended. Consistent with this provision and the mission of the college, the Nursing Program gives preference to enrolled tribal members and descendants traceable to the second generation during the admissions process. However; You do NOT need to be Native to be accepted into the SKC Nursing Programs.

Veteran's Priority of Service Policy

The requirement to provide priority of service to veterans applies to all programs that receive funding from the United States Department of Labor. “Veteran” is defined as a person who served at least one day in the active military, naval, or air service, and who was discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable. The Veteran’s Priority of Service Policy is available at the Nursing Department upon request.

Detailed information about our program is provided in the SKC catalog.
