Interested in GVSU?

We understand that service members and their families have unique needs and responsibilities when it comes to college.

Grand Valley’s veteran-specific resources offer an integrated support system that guides these students to graduation. 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.

Whether you are a high school senior interested in our Veteran Promise program or an adult student looking to complete their bachelor’s degree, GVSU has you covered.
