CLEVELAND, OH — Cleveland State University is one of the top universities in the United States for veterans, based on the Military Times Best for Vets: Colleges 2021 rankings.

Best for Vets ranked CSU 2nd among public universities in Ohio and 20th in the nation among four-year institutions, confirming that the university is a top choice for veterans and active-duty military personnel pursuing their education.

“As a veteran myself, I understand what it takes to prioritize supporting our veterans and active-duty service members,” said Cleveland State University President Harlan Sands.

The Best for Vets ranking is considered the most comprehensive school-by-school assessment of veteran and military student services and their rates of academic achievement.

The list is prepared from an annual survey of colleges and universities and data from the U.S. Departments of Education and Veterans Affairs. The study evaluates a variety of services, accommodations and financial incentives offered to students with military ties and explores the culture of veterans on campus.

Cleveland State’s Veteran & Military Success Center empowers, engages, and advocates for the success of all military-connected students.

The program recognizes that attending college after serving in the military — or being a military-connected family member — is a transitional process for many.

The center also provides veteran-specific orientation, individualized support, and mentoring through the Veteran Student Success Program, academic and career assistance, veteran-led student organizations. Within a 4,000 square foot facility, it includes a dayroom, computer lab, study space and kitchen.
