The experience in, and transition from, the military is unique to each person and we are here to make sure you do not have to face your struggles alone. Whether you are currently serving, have served or are part of the military family, our goal at the Veteran & Military Success Center is to help you access all the tools and programs available to help you succeed at Cleveland State and beyond.
