Portland State University VetSuccess on Campus

All student Veterans, Active Duty, and Dependents attending Portland State University (PSU) can access the Department of Veterans Affairs through a full time VA Counselor/Coordinator.

VetSuccess on Campus is a program through the Veterans Benefits Administration that places an experienced Vocational Counselor at a local college to provide assistance & support to veteran students and their eligible family members.  This counselor will serve as a “one-stop liaison” for Veterans on campus.  PSU is only one of twenty campuses in the nation to have an on-campus counselor from the VA.
