Study: Vets do better in college than comparable civilians | MilitaryTimes

Student veterans using the Post-9/11 GI Bill are mostly pursuing bachelor’s or graduate degrees, attending public or private schools rather than for-profit institutions, and studying disciplines such as business, healthcare and STEM, a new study from Student Veterans of America found.

The National Veteran Education Success Tracker, or NVEST, project also found that student veterans earn degrees at rates better than comparable nonveteran students. But pinpointing a completion or success rate for this group remains difficult and highly open to interpretation.
