Why Select USD?

We could give a list of reasons why our military students love USD but we figured it would be better to let them speak for themselves. 

"Everyone is great at working with soldiers to ensure the best outcome for them, such as classes, due dates, military absences, etc."

"USD is a very veteran friendly institution."

"USD Veteran services are great and welcoming."

Individual, couples and family counseling, support and educational groups and referral to other resources are provided. There is no charge for the services provided from the Vet Centers. The mission is to provide post-service and post-combat readjustment to civilian life, to include counseling for post-traumatic stress responses.
