Welcome, Veterans

The Veterans Center is currently undergoing an expansion. In the meantime, the Veterans Services team is available in Cougar Central.

When it is operational, the Veterans Center is a one-stop shop for veterans, active-duty and military-connected students.  

Services at the Center include VA benefit information and certification, Cal Vet application assistance, a computer lab, indoor and outdoor lounge areas, as well as monthly access to VA Compensation and Vocational Rehabilitation representatives.  

The Center is a hub for our military-connected students, where they can enjoy quiet study-time, or special events put on by the Student Veteran Organization or the Veteran Services team.   

Thanks to a generous $1 million gift from the Epstein Family Foundation, the Veterans Center is undergoing an expansion that will position CSUSM’s Veterans Services as a national model for advancing higher education, programming and services to military-connected students.  

All new veteran and active duty applicants, should view Applying to CSUSM for the latest on admissions and orientation deadlines.
