Welcome Veterans!  Semper Spartans!

Making SJSU a Welcoming Place for Warriors




Brand new Veterans Resource Center-now open!

Located in the Main Student Union-Suite 1500 


The Veterans Resource Center (VRC) is designed as a one-stop resource that plays a primary role in serving the university's growing community of veterans and military students.  The VRC assists eligible student Veterans, Active Duty Service persons, Dependents, Reservists, and National Guard Members with state and federal education benefit programs as well as VA Health services and connections to campus resources.  The VRC provides enrollment certification to the Department of Veterans Affairs for Veterans and Dependents and 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.
