Clark State currently serves United States military veteran students, active military students, National Guard and Reserve students, dependents and military spouses.
Clark State received the designation of Top School in the 2018 Military Advanced Education & Transition (MAE&T) Guide to Colleges & Universities. This honor is awarded to institutions with the very best practices in military- and veteran-supportive education.
In 2015 Clark State was designated as a Purple Heart Campus and was approved by the Community College of the Air Force as a General Education Mobile (GEM) partner. Clark State was the first community college in Ohio to receive this approval. The College also features a Veterans Lounge that provides student veterans with a place to unwind, study, hold meetings or network.
Clark State students have also been inducted into the SALUTE National Honor Society. SALUTE – Service, Academics, Leadership, Unity, Tribute, Excellence - is the only national honor society recognizing and honoring the service and scholastic achievements of student veterans.
Clark State initiated a 50 percent tuition discount to military students and a 25 percent discount to eligible spouses beginning with the Fall 2017 semester.
“We are proud to honor the veterans and military in our Clark State community of students, alumni, faculty and staff,” said Justin McCulla. “Veterans Day is November 11. I encourage all to join us as we recognize the accomplishments and sacrifices of the men and women in our nation's military.”
