Columbia University Launches Free Online Course to Assist Veterans in Transitioning to Higher Education
About the Columbia University Center for Veteran Transition and Integration
The Center for Veteran Transition and Integration was launched to have a direct and lasting impact on the issue of veteran transition and upward mobility by creating and providing access to the best-in-class tools and programming veterans need as they transition from active service to college and the workforce. CVTI is developing and delivering educational programming through a national community of partner universities, employers, and veteran service organizations committed to facilitating veterans’ upward mobility. The intent is to align and integrate these institutions’ direct services into the mission, operations, and performance measures of CVTI.

About the Columbia University School of General Studies
The Columbia University School of General Studies (GS) is one of three undergraduate colleges at the University, and is the finest liberal arts college in the United States dedicated to serving nontraditional students seeking a rigorous, traditional, Ivy League education—including those who have served in the U.S. and foreign militaries. GS is home to the largest population of veterans in the Ivy League and is unique as a free-standing college fully dedicated to the complete academic integration of nontraditional students. GS students take the same courses, study with the same faculty, and earn the same degree as all other undergraduates at Columbia University.
