Because of the growing number of veterans who are entering the workforce and /or attending college and university campuses to pursue higher education, attention to the needs of college student veterans has increased. Previous research by the National Center for Veterans Studies indicated that many student veterans report a high level of psychological distress, but academic performance has not yet been widely researched. This survey, being conducted by the NCVS, is intended to assess veterans’ experiences both on and off college and university campuses, and to determine what contributes to veteran success.
Research Question 1: What factors are associated with grade point average, motivation to continue attending school, and academic performance (e.g., frequency of missed classes, failed tests)?
Research Question 2: Do veterans who are currently enrolled in college or university classes significantly differ from those who are not enrolled in classes in terms of emotional distress and social-occupational functioning?
Research Question 3: What factors are significantly associated with decreased risk for suicidal ideation and suicide attempts among veterans?
