Abstract (Summary)

This study was conducted to investigate the relationship between the use of self-regulatory resource management strategies and academic achievement in student veterans with PTSD symptoms. There have been several studies conducted pertaining to the transitional issues veterans face while enrolling in education and self-reports of veteran’s perceived support from faculty and the adequacy of campus resources. There have not been any studies performed to evaluate why some veteran students excel in post secondary education while others fail to succeed.

Twenty-five veterans were recruited through email to participate in a three-part questionnaire survey. In veterans students it can be concluded that there is a correlation between individual questions related to GPA and the Resource Management Strategies, combat experiences and PTSD symptoms, number of deployments and PTSD symptoms, combat experience, number of deployments, and PTSD symptoms. However, there is no significant correlation between the average of the Resource Management Strategies and GPA.
