2021 Best in the West for the second straight year for most veteran-friendly universities — U.S. News & World Report

Cal Poly’s military-friendly campus offers an enthusiastic and supportive community for all veterans, service members, and our large group of military-dependent students. The Center for Military-Connected Students is a central hub of information and support. We strive to provide comprehensive assistance to all military-connected students. The dedicated CMCS team supports students in accessing their VA education and Cal Vet Fee Waiver Benefits. The center can direct students to a multitude of campus and community resources. 

Drop by our virtual center and get to know current students who are dedicated to building a military-friendly community. Our virtual center staff can answer questions or schedule appointments with our staff experts. Join in on any of our upcoming events - alumni, current, and admitted students are always welcome. 

We are available to assist with all VA, TA and Cal Vet Fee waiver questions and paperwork. We also coordinate all in-state tuition requests for out-of-state military-connected students, when eligible. For quarters beginning after August 1, 2021 students who are using Post 9/11 GI Bill® or Fry Scholarship benefits are eligible for in-state tuition.

If you are a newly admitted student, check out our new student checklist to begin the process of accessing and using benefits at Cal Poly.
