For the second consecutive year, Cal State San Bernardino has been distinguished as a Military Friendly School, according to a national survey by G.I. Jobs magazine.
Military veterans and current service members who want to continue their education can combine the call to duty with the call of opportunity.
Cal State San Bernardino and other California colleges and universities have added programs and benefits to streamline admission, attendance and costs, allowing Armed Forces veterans who are stationed or reside in California to strike new career paths, develop new skills, or resume an interrupted education.
Also, programs affiliated with the U.S. Armed Forces offer flexibility to accommodate active military and reserve service obligations.
Look at the Academic Programs and other links at left to find academic areas of interest. Service members can use these links to get information on education options, applying for university admission, gaining credit for service done, registering for classes after gaining admission to the university, gathering financial aid packages, and checking into other resources for veterans and those with disabilities. CSUSB has advisers for step-by-step guidance regarding applications for admission and veterans’ benefits. Forms and information links are provided, as well as links to Armed Forces and other related Web sites.
Be sure to contact CSUSB’s Veterans' Affairs coordinator, Melissa McQuead, who can provide advice to veterans, reservists and dependents of service-disabled or deceased veterans on completing and filing VA claim forms for federal and state education assistance programs. The coordinator’s office can also assist with special registration procedures required for students who are sponsored through one of the VA fee waiver programs (for dependents and disabled veterans).
