Welcome Veterans

As part of the Office of the Registrar, the Veterans Services Office assists eligible student Veterans, Active Service persons, Dependents, Reservists, and National Guard Members with state and federal education benefit programs.

San José State University provides enrollment certification to the Department of Veterans Affairs for Veterans and Dependents. SJSU accepts the College Fee Waiver for Cal Vet recipients. We also assist students with their required VA Educational Plan and serve as liaison between the Office of the Registrar and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

For additional information, please contact the Program Director for Military and Veteran Students, Maggie Morales, at 408-924-6299 or email:

Priority Registration for Veterans

Continuing students who are veterans or members of the U.S. armed forces may register for classes on the first day of advanced registration. Veterans and members of the military who are eligible for special priority registration have served on active duty in the armed forces.  Students must provide documentation that verifies service on active duty. Documents, such as DD-214 and DD-295, and military transcripts are acceptable. Veterans may submit documents to the Veterans Services Office.
