Welcome Veterans!

 

Making SJSU a Welcoming Place for Warriors

The Military and Veteran Services Office, which is a Division of Student Affairs, plays a primary role in serving the university's growing community of veterans and military students.  The office assists eligible student Veterans, Active Duty 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 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.

For additional information, please contact the Program Director for Military and Veteran Students, Maggie Morales, at 408-924-6299 or email: maggie.morales@sjsu.edu.  For Enrollment Certification questions contact Jose Calderon: jose.d.calderon@sjsu.edu.

 

Our office is located near 7th and San Fernando in the Administration building:  ADM 265.
