Welcome, Service Members and Veterans

Golden Gate University is committed to meeting the educational needs of military-affiliated students. GGU’s core mission is to provide education in accounting, law, taxation, and business-related areas to adults—like you—who are balancing the complex demands of life. You can attend classes full- or part-time either in-person at one of our campuses or 100% online. Our curriculum emphasizes actionable, real-world content taught by professors who are currently practicing in their fields.

Student Veterans Services is your go-to place for resources and referrals that can help you transition from military service to campus life and beyond. Contact the Veterans Service Coordinator for information about housing, support services, and connecting with other veterans and service members at GGU.
