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 V.E.T.S. @ SFSU website, Facebook Page or e-mail vets.sfsu@gmail.com.

Vets register first at SF State!

Continuing students who are veterans or members of the armed forces of the United States will register for classes on the first day of priority registration. San Francisco State has given this registration priority to all qualified veterans. Veterans and members of the military who are eligible for special priority registration have served on active duty in the US armed forces. Students must provide documentation that verifies service or active duty. Documents such as the DD-214, DD-295, military transcripts are acceptable. Students who have already submitted confirming documents will have special priority registration starting the second semester of attendance. During the first semester, veterans and service members of the US armed forces will be allowed to register for full-time during orientation. Veterans who have not submitted documents can mail them to the Veterans Services Center.
