Take advantage of the VA Campus Toolkit
The VA Campus Toolkit provides faculty, staff, and administrators resources to support student Veterans on campus. From the Toolkit:
"Student Veterans report mixed concerns about academic success. Some report a readiness for school work that is heightened by their military experience....Other student Veterans report concerns about performing up to academic standards."
"Student Veterans consistently report that the Post 9/11 GI Bill helped with their adjustment to school....Nonetheless, negotiating GI Educational Benefits and transferring credits obtained while in the military are two stressful experiences reported by student Veterans."
