Student Veteran Services


Spring 2019 Veterans Graduation Celebration


CSUMB Student Veteran Services supports students who are veterans, current military, and veteran dependents. Our support includes certifying educational benefits, and making on & off campus referrals. 

CSUMB is located on what used to be Fort Ord. After Fort Ord was closed in 1994, CSUMB was created and classes started in Fall 1995.  Many CSUMB students have family members who served at Fort Ord and a handful of our students have been stationed there themselves. The Monterey Peninsula has a significant military history and a large community of active military and veterans.
