Veteran Certification

Veteran Benefits

California State University, San Bernardino, has been approved by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education, a State of California Department of Consumer Affairs, to train eligibile veterans and their eligible dependents.

Undergraduate Degree Programs, Certificate Programs (through regular university only), Graduate Degree Programs and Teacher Credential Programs are approved programs for eligible veterans and their dependents. No other programs are approved by the BPPVE and veterans will not be awarded benefits for them. Therefore, only course work completed towards the specific degree, certificate program or credential program will be certified to the Veterans Administration. The Veteran Certifying Official at this institution has been delegated the authority to process enrollment verifications and other certification documents to confirm and audit each Veteran's enrollment activity to ensure that Veteran Benefits disbursements are in compliance with the Title 38 Program.
