Resources for Veterans

student veteranWELCOME HOME and THANK YOU for your service to our country.

Transitioning back to the civilian world can take time and finding civilian employment that will highlight the strengths and skills that you have learned from your military experience can sometimes feel like an uphill climb. The Career Center staff at SJSU are committed to helping you complete your next mission.


Mission: Graduate

Transitioning to university life can be challenging. In some ways the atmosphere is more casual and less structured compared to the military. It is important to remember that all students at the university come from different walks of life and will have different ways of approaching their educational experience. Even though students may have different attitudes towards how they approach their education, their mission is the same as yours: GRADUATION. Stay focused on how you will complete your mission and remember to focus on YOU.

 Different ways to adapt to University life are:

    • Understand the resources that are available to you as a student veteran
    • Develop your educational plan to maximize your GI Bill benefits
    • Get connected on campus to ensure that you get the most academic support
    • Connect with faculty and staff members during office hours 

San Jose State University has a lot of resources to help you get connected. This short video shows one veteran’s experience of getting connected to the different services at SJSU.
