How Successful are Student Veterans in Higher Education? Results and Discussion of the NVEST Project
Track: Student Success
In 2017, Student Veterans of America (SVA) released the National Veteran Education Success Tracker (NVEST) Project Reports. The NVEST Project has significantly helped change the narrative about student veterans, adding needed data on the early return on investment of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, and provided accurate information to stake holders, policy makers, and the public on student veterans and the Post-9/11 GI Bill. This presentation will cover new results on student veterans path to initial degree and a comparison of student veteran academic outcomes with the national student population.
