Military Services Support Center

As a veteran, you have given your all to our country.  Central State is honored to give back to you.

Military Services Support Center (MSSC)
The mission of the MSSC at Central State University is to assist veterans in pursuing their educational, professional, or vocational objectives. The center, located at CSU-Dayton, serves as a liaison between enrolled veterans and dependent students of veterans and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Students eligible to claim Veterans Services benefits include active duty service members; retirees; honorably discharged service members; veterans on a VA vocation rehabilitation program; and National Guard and reserve personnel.


Veterans Education Program
Whether you have transitioned out of the military, are still serving, or are a military dependent, CSU is dedicated to helping you succeed.  In tandem with the Tom Joyner Foundation, CSU has implemented a comprehensive Veterans Education Program, housed at the MSSC, to meet your every need.
