Veteran Success

At the Sarasota-Manatee campus, USF and the Office of Veteran Success are dedicated to providing our military and veteran students with the support they need to excel academically and professionally.

That’s why we created a Military and Veterans Success Center on campus – to offer you a sense of community in a place where you can connect with other student veterans and access important educational resources for your success.

Reach out to us to learn about veteran benefits, scholarships and more! Explore this Sarasota-Manatee campus site as well as the St. Petersburg and Tampa campus sites.
