Why Veterans Choose GVSU

Grand Valley understands that service members and their families have unique needs and responsibilities when it comes to starting, earning and completing their degrees.

Our veteran-specific resources are offered an integrated support system that guides these students to graduation.

We believe that military veterans are one of our greatest untapped resources for the benefit of our companies, nonprofits and government organizations. We also believe that veterans are the way to stronger, safer, more innovative communities and country.

GVSU is a university dedicated to being veteran-inclusive, and we've created a comprehensive program that helps veterans feel supported and connected all the way through graduation and beyond.

Our path to better communities, companies and country is to fully support student veterans.
