Since the introduction of the post 9/11 GI Bill in 2008, there has been a significant increase (42%) of veterans enrolling in colleges, universities, and vocational schools (National Center for Veterans Analysis and Statistics, 2014). Over one million veterans utilize benefits from the GI Bill including paid in-state tuition and monthly stipends for books, supplies, and housing. However, veterans still face many challenges ranging from lack of understanding other students and faculty, finding camaraderie, and obtaining counseling services (National Conference of State Legislatures, 2014). Higher education administration should consider these challenges and provide resources to help student veterans succeed in reaching their educational goals. Defining the beneficial factors that influence student veteran success helps clarify what measures need to be taken to meet the needs of student veterans. This project will identify therapeutic resources that will highlight tools designed to help military members overcome obstacles on and off campus and help increase the chances of their academic success.
