Platt College San Diego is proud to serve its veteran student population. Our student population includes active duty service members, veterans and dependents. In fact, Platt College’s Chairman, himself, as well as the President and Vice President’s father served in the military; additionally, many PCSD staff and faculty members have a family history of veterans.
Along with the Admissions Procedures (General), Military Veterans are also required to submit your DD214 (Member-4), Joint Service Transcript and any college transcripts you have attended (for possible transfer credits), and proof of High School graduation or GED.
After your tour and meeting with an admissions representative, you also have the option to speak with our Student Service Liaison who may answer funding source questions.
