PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS

Veterans

At CSUN we are dedicated to helping veterans and active-duty personnel take advantage of the university’s incredible opportunities. If you’re a student veteran, you may qualify for educational benefits, such as class credit for military training process, priority registration, specific scholarships and other perks. You can find some basic information below, but we encourage you to visit the Veterans Affairs website or call (818) 677-5928 for more resources.

For specific information about admissions requirements and cost of attendance, visit "Future Freshmen," "Transfer Students," "Graduate Students" or "International Students."

Getting Started

Some of the services available to veterans include priority registration, tutoring, financial assistance, career counseling, counseling services and disability resources. To get started and determine your benefits, follow these steps.
  1. Gather your military transcripts, such as AARTS (Army/American Council on Education Registry Transcript System), SMART (Sailor/Marine American Council on Education Registry Transcript), CCAF (Community College of the Air Force) or DD 214 (Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty) documents.
  2. Determine your benefits by consulting the education services officer (ESO) on your base or the Veterans Affairs office in your area.
  3. Visit the Office of Veterans Affairs website or call the CSUN office at (818) 677-5928.

California State University makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. Therefore, California State University must reserve the right, even after initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees without notice until the date of instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun. All California State University listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by the Board of Trustees.
