SERV is a new program at Cleveland State University that is designed to assist military veterans with their transition from soldier to civilian to student. Classes have been designed specifically for veterans to help them in that very important first year of college. In addition, support is provided for veterans who have taken college-level coursework previously at CSU or elsewhere. The program is open to veterans only.
It has been found over the last decade that the leading reason civilians choose to enlist in the military is for the educational benefits provided upon the successful completion of their enlistment term. In reality, however, very few – less than 10% – take full advantage of their earned benefits. Cleveland State has researched the reason for this low number, and the SERV program specifically addresses these concerns.
CSU's SERV Program was featured on "The American Veteran" which is co-produced by the VA Learning University and the Office of Public Affairs in partnership with VA's Employee Education System and other VA headquarters and field offices.
