Support for Veterans, Active Duty Members and their Dependents

St. Cloud State University proudly supports our troops and works hard to turn our respect into action by giving service members and their families the support and resources they need to transition to an academic setting.

The Veterans Resource Center assists veterans, active duty members and their dependents with educational benefits, understanding their rights and benefits, and support while they are pursuing their degree.

SCSU was the first Minnesota State system university to be recognized by the Minnesota National Guard as a Beyond the Yellow Ribbon campus. Since 2010, GI Jobs magazine has recognized St. Cloud State as a Military Friendly School.
