Veteran Services

A scholarly guide to academic research tailored to veterans entering or returning to higher education.


Welcome to the USF Student Veterans Subject Guide! We hope that this guide will be helpful to our military veterans who are returning to school, as well as to students and faculty with an interest in veteran’s services. Our focus is to provide current information from the news, links to outside services that veterans might benefit from, and information that will help student veterans in their studies.

For information on USF Campus veteran services, please see their website,

For Sarasota-Manatee Campus, please visit this site, .

A note from our University President

President’s Report

May 2011

Dear Friends,

This week we celebrate with our graduates as each institution within the USF System holds its commencements. We will graduate a record of more than 5,700 students, all pursuing their aspirations in new careers or further study. They came to us from 45 states and 97 nations, and we are honored to be their alma mater, their home for learning and personal growth.

Many of our graduates are veterans of the armed forces, and we’re especially honored to be ranked 8th in the nation for our programs for returning veterans. A recent story in USA Today highlighted USF and our students as one of the great examples of universities leading the transition from combat to classroom.
