Veterans Services

**Epstein Family Veterans Center services (NOT certifications) will be in Craven 5111 until further notice**

 CSUSM is home to more than 500 student Veterans; the highest percentage per capita of any California State University campus. We pride ourselves on our high-touch holistic approach toward our military-connected students, and offer a wide array of services and resources for them.

The Veteran Services team is comprised of faculty and staff, mostly Veterans themselves, serving CSUSM Veterans, active duty, and family members in a number of ways. We're dedicated to ensuring the successful transition of our students into sustainable careers.

Veteran Services provides opportunities for mentorship and professional development; networking and portfolio building; and to meet with VA claims representatives and university deans.

ALL veterans benefit processing is located in Cougar Central.
