Mission: To offer a comprehensive higher education experience that meets the needs of our veteran students from transition to graduation.  We are dedicated to providing excellence in customer service.  The goal of the MVSC is to provide military, veterans, and dependent students with the resources and knowledge to be successful at Colorado State University Pueblo. MVSC staff assists student who wish to utilize Veteran’s education benefits, Military TA and other military tuition assistance programs.  MVSC advocates for the military affiliated population on campus and strives to continually implement and improve processes and procedures that will help students further their education goals. 

We service over 400 veteran, dependent, and active duty students on the CSU Pueblo campus each semester. Our guarantee is to provide personalized service to assist with the completion of each student’s desired academic program.

The MVSC is intended to act as transition assistance for currently enrolled students. The move from military to civilian life can be challenging and we intend to make it as fluid a move as possible. That is why we have computers with free printing, free coffee, use of a kitchen, big screen TV, lounge area, and a textbook library for free checkout.

The Colorado State University Pueblo Principles of Excellence for Educational Institutions Serving Service Members, Veterans, Spouses, and other Family Members:

  • Give you a written personal summary of the total cost of your educational program, including:
    • The costs covered by your benefits.
    • The financial aid you may qualify for.
    • Your expected student-loan debt after you graduate.
    • Other information to help you compare aid packages offered by different schools.
  • Give you an educational plan with a timeline showing how and when you can fulfill everything required for you to graduate.
  • Assign you a point of contact who will give you ongoing academic and financial advice (including access to disability counseling).
  • Allow for you to be gone for both long and short periods of time due to service obligations (service you must fulfill) for active-duty service members and Reservists.
  • Make sure all new programs are accredited (officially approved) before enrolling students.
  • Make sure their refund policies follow Title IV rules, which guide federal student financial aid programs.
  • End fraudulent (deceitful) and aggressive methods of recruiting.

In addition to these guiding principles, our office also provides post-graduate employment connections. Through external community outreach projects, we build relationships with business leaders in Pueblo and across the state of Colorado. These relationships allow us to connect these leaders to our veteran, military, and dependent students.
