Higher Education Resources for Veterans and their Families
MORE THAN 150 RESOURCES TO HELP STUDENT VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES OVERCOME THE CHALLENGES OF HIGHER EDUCATION AND CAREER TRAINING.
Veterans going to college for the first time face a wide range of challenges. Before classes begin, there’s pressure to find the right school, navigating the new GI Bill, and making sure all necessary materials have been organized and submitted. After D-Day, there’s fitting in socially, staying afloat financially, and working toward a degree that offers true career potential. Also, students who saw combat might have medical issues to deal with, such as PTSD, or need special accommodations on campus to help with travel to and from the classroom.To help current (and aspiring) student veterans and their families, this comprehensive guidebook serves two complementary purposes:
1. To address the many challenges that college-bound veterans face daily, including those of a financial, social, academic, medical and geographic nature.
2. To provide valuable information and resources vetted by actual student veterans who have experienced (and overcome) these challenges first-hand.
