veterans center opening
CSUSM is home to more than 470 student veterans; the highest percentage per capita of any California State University campus. We also serve over 1,700 military-connected students; which is 11% of our campus population. 

The Veteran Services team is comprised of faculty and staff, all military-connected and mostly veterans, serving our student veterans, active duty, and family members in a number of ways. We're dedicated to ensuring the successful transition of our students into meaningful careers.

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

ALL veterans benefit processing is located in Cougar Central.
