Important Policies affecting Veterans - Please read!!
Priority Registration for Selected Student Veterans
In accordance with the Assembly Bill 2133, California resident veterans, or those serving on active duty or in the National Guard or Reserve attending public colleges and universities are granted priority registration for classes for a period of four years, which must be used within 15 years of leaving active service. Eligible CSULB students must provide proof of service (i.e. a DD-214 or current enlistment contract) to the Veterans Services Office.
All student veterans are encouraged to sign up for services at CSULB's Disabled Student Services (DSS) office and the Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) office. Both offices provide professional staff services to assist student veterans with injuries in an academic environment.
These offices are often times used in conjunction with VA hospital services or Vet Center assistance. DSS and CAPS can make referrals for student veterans attending CSULB who may require extended healthcare support through the Veterans Administration.
Course Withdrawal due to Mobilization
Prior to Census and the ‘W’ period, upon submission of the student’s orders Enrollment Services removes the enrollment from the student’s record, processing it in such a way that he/she will be refunded. After this period, Enrollment Services assigns a WE so that there is no adverse impact to the student and coordinates refund processing with the Student Financial Services office.

As provided for in the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, students who leave CSULB to serve in the Armed Forces of the United States will be allowed to return to the same program with the same standing they had when they left.
Military servicemembers and veterans who were absent from CSULB for service in the Armed Forces are eligible to return to CSULB based on the following provisions:
- Upon notification of intent to re-enroll, students will be required to submit (RETURN TO CSULB AFTER MILITARY SERVICE FORM)
A servicemember or veteran who does not meet these criteria is subject to current CSULB admissions requirements and may apply for readmission by submitting the CSUMentor application and application fee during the CSU admissions period.
Questions regarding CSULB's policy or procedures for military leave should be directed to the Veterans Services Office.
