Summer 2020 COVID-19 Update


Please note: Due to the shelter-in-place order announced for San Mateo County on 3/16/2020 our physical location on the College of San Mateo campus will be closed until further notice.

We are still available to serve you remotely. Please email us at the CSMVets@smccd.edu and we will respond to you as quickly as we can. Thank you for your patience.

New Students: Please visit our Getting Started page to download our CSM Enrollment and GI Bill Checklists that will help guide you through your initial steps at CSM. If you have any questions or assistance on the checklists, please contact Luis Padilla at padillal@smccd.edu with any questions regarding enrollment and education benefits. Thank You!
CSM is dedicated to making sure that all veterans, reservists, active duty members and their family members receive the well-deserved respect and benefits they have earned.
