ALLENDALE, Mich. — In what may be a first in the nation, Grand Valley State University announced the GVSU Veteran Promise, where the school reserves admission slots for any Michigan high school graduate who sign up for at least two years of military service.

“As a university, we are committed to removing barriers to enrollment for a wide variety of populations and our veterans are no different,” said GVSU President Philomena V. Mantella in a release.

The university will automatically accept the admission of the veteran upon completion of their service, the school says.

“Some veterans face unique challenges transitioning to civilian life,” Mantella stated, noting that going to college after military service can provide the transition that may be needed.
