V.E.T.S. stands for Veterans Education Transition & Support and is the student organization for veterans and their families and friends at SF State. The members of the club have come together on campus to meet and talk to other veterans, educate the campus community about veterans, and to have a good time. The main goals of the club are to promote student life and create a non-partisan environment at SF State. We invite you to become part of the club. For more information check out their Facebook Page or e-mail


Vets register first at SF State!

Continuing students who are veterans or members of the U.S. armed forces may register for classes on the first day of priority registration. Veterans and members of the military who are eligible for special priority registration have served on active duty in the armed forces. Students must provide documentation that verifies service on active duty. Documents, such as DD-214, and military transcripts are acceptable. Veterans may submit documents to our office.
