Two houses that stand side by side on 32nd Street near the University Park Campus represent an important milestone for veterans: They’re the first residential units for students who are transitioning from military service to civilian life, and they opened this fall.

Having affordable housing reduces a lot of the stress that veterans face as they adapt to being students and living in Los Angeles. The new housing is just one of the many ways that USC supports their academic achievement and well-being.

USC VETERANS ASSOCIATION

The group’s membership includes undergraduate and graduate students from all branches of the military. It represents the voices and interests of the campus community and helps find opportunities and resources for student veterans.

Meet with a certifying official, connect with other students, learn about services available on campus and enjoy a welcoming space to relax and study.

YELLOW RIBBON PROGRAM 

Any veteran who is admitted to USC and eligible for the GI Bill is guaranteed full tuition coverage through the national Yellow Ribbon program.

MASTER OF BUSINESS FOR VETERANS

WITH YOUR SHIELD

A new free certificate program at the USC Marshall School of Business connects veterans and their families to USC’s resources for employment, education and professional development. Currently open to Naval Special Warfare personnel, the program is part of the Military Veterans Initiative established by USC Trustee William McMorrow.
