Office of Veteran Success at the Military and Veterans Success Center

Overview

At St. Petersburg campus we are dedicated to providing our military families, military, and student veterans with the support they need to excel academically and professionally. 

That’s why we created the Military and Veterans Success Center on campus- to offer you a sense of community in a place where you can connect with others who have shared experiences and access important educational resources for your success.

Got your Six

On the St. Petersburg campus, we’ve “Got Your Six!” This is the military’s way of saying, “We’ve got your back.” Learn more about this initiative and our promise to you as a military or veteran student.

Our most important mission is your success. We are fortunate to be the university of choice for over 2,000 veterans and military-related students like you. You bring important diversity and life experiences to our campus.

To help you be successful, USF has kicked off the Got Your Six Veterans Success Network program to help faculty and staff better understand your military experience and how they can better support you as a student. Look for the Got Your Six sticker on office doors or windows identifying a willing resource for you.
