The Veterans Center is a one-stop shop for veterans, active-duty and their dependents that are new to the CSUSM campus or continuing students. We provide these eligible individuals with information, services and certifications regarding their federal VA educational benefits. 

About 11 percent of California State San Marcos students are veterans, service members, reservists or dependents/spouses, and that number is expected to grow as more military personnel retire or discharge and seek opportunities in the civilian world.

CSUSM, located close to Camp Pendleton and several other military installations, has the highest percentage of student veterans per capita of any California State University (CSU) campus.

UPDATE: All new CSUSM Veteran and Active Duty applicants view the Applying to CSUSM page under Admissions for the latest on admissions and orientation deadlines.
