Welcome, Veterans and Family Members

Whether you are active duty military, a member of our National Guard or Reserves, a spouse or family member with a loved one in the military, a retired service member, or have left the service and are looking forward to the next chapter in your life, Colorado State University is here for you.

Since 1870, CSU has served those who have served our nation, and we currently are home to 2,000 student-veterans, dependents, and active duty military members.

CSU has developed a value-based model for student-veteran engagement and academic success. Our approach is strengths-based and opportunity-focused and emphasizes accountability as students work to complete their degrees and secure sustainable careers after college.

CSU’s continued commitment to better serve military veterans and family members has been recognized by Military Times, which ranked CSU as the No. 5 public university in the nation in its annual “Best for Vets: Colleges 2018” rankings.
