About Troops to College
Current and former U.S. Armed Forces service members and their dependents can take advantage of educational opportunities at the CSU to develop skills that will benefit them and their communities.
If you are a veteran who wishes to pursue higher education, we encourage you to claim your GI Bill benefits, investigate academic programs offered at the California State University, determine which campuses provide programs of study that interest you, and get in touch with campus coordinators to further discuss your options.
This website is intended to supply some of the necessary forms and information related to the benefits service members and veterans qualify for. Each California State University campus has a designated Veterans Affairs Coordinator who is available to advise and assist military members, veterans and their dependents on completing and filing VA claim forms for federal and state education assistance. The Veterans Affairs Coordinator may also assist with special registration procedures available for students who are sponsored under one of the VA Fee Waiver programs for dependents and disabled veterans.
More than 2 million students have graduated from CSU campuses and have helped to shape the future of California and the nation. That's why a CSU education is more than just a learning experience — it's an opportunity to make a difference.
