Resources for Veterans

The Veterans Resources Office takes a community approach to assisting veterans and their families through the transition from servicemember to student to finding the right career. While these agencies and organizations are not affiliated with Cal Lutheran they all have proven useful in the transition to civilian life. If you are familiar with an origination that other veteran and dependent students may benefit from please contact the Veteran Coordinator to have them added to this page.
