Description

Our second study, Barriers to academic achievement for student Veterans: A qualitative study, was based on a thorough review of the literature about the challenges facing collegiate students who are also Veterans. A number of studies have found that Veterans generally engage in significantly more activities traditionally associated with student success than do their non-veteran counterparts. For example, student Veterans spend more time studying, are more likely to speak to professors, attend class more regularly, and are more involved with student groups. Though student Veterans are more likely to engage in behaviors indicative of student success, they are less likely to be successful, as reflected by lower grade point averages and lower graduation rates.
