U.S. veterans, spouses, and dependents, welcome to the Central State University community! The Military Services Support Center at CSU Dayton is designed to be a safe place for Active and Veteran service members and your families.


Veterans Education Program

Whether you have transitioned out of the military, are still serving, or are a military dependent, Central State University is dedicated to accompanying your every step to meet your educational goals. In tandem with the Tom Joyner Foundation, Central State University has implemented a comprehensive Veterans Education Program (VEP) to meet your every need.

As a veteran, you have given your all to our country. Now, let Central State University located in Wilberforce, Ohio, give you the assistance you will need in getting started with college and achieving a four-year degree.
