Description/Abstract

This study examines the individual-level transitions encountered by student veterans (National Guard and Reserve members) as they re-enroll in college post-deployment, while also attempting to account for the complexities of student and veteran identities. In practice, service members who are re-enrolling in college at the undergraduate level should seek out support groups for student veterans, and most universities have focused attention on ensuring that veterans understand their available benefits, which is a significant step forward; however, universities should also implement support services for veterans in the form of student veteran organizations and support groups. Suggestions for future study include having a greater variety of student veterans in their samples to ensure there is feedback from service members in all branches, as well as performing longitudinal research that examines the links between low family income, joining the military, college re-enrollment, and career outcomes.
