UCSC is committed to supporting its veteran students and employees.
Services for Transfer and Re-Entry Students (STARS) helps UCSC to welcome students who are military veterans and invites them to participate in a wide variety of academic and personal support services and programs. A student veteran support coordinator, and a group of veteran peer mentors are available on a drop-in or by-appointment basis to assist with your transition to the campus and help you get started on your UCSC educational path.
The affirmative action provisions of the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (VEVRAA) prohibits job discrimination and requires federal contractors and subcontractors to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified Vietnam era veterans, special disabled veterans, recently separated veterans, and veterans who served on active duty during a war on in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized. This law is enforced by the Veterans' Employment and Training Service (VETS).
Military reservists and National Guard members called to active duty have rights and responsibilities under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA).
Additional information is available from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), another government resource that provides information on programs and benefits for veterans, and locations of VA facilities worldwide.
