The Columbia University Center for Veteran Transition and Integration, in partnership with the Center for Teaching and Learning and the School of General Studies, has designed a unique MOOC (massive open online course) version of its University Studies course specifically to help veterans transition smoothly from military service to higher education, and bolster their success once they arrive. The MOOC, which is free and open to all, is scheduled to launch on September 6, 2017.

University Studies for Student Veterans is a full-length MOOC based on a course that has been taught with great success at Columbia for the last five years. Led by a team of academic advisors from Columbia University with more than 20 years of experience supporting students—including thousands of student veterans—transitioning to higher education, this course offers strategies for academic success for service members and veterans navigating the transition from military service to the college classroom.
