Workshop: Support Student Veterans - 1st Critical Year

Course ID - CTD0395v 

Short Title: Student Veterans    

 Audience    All Employees 
Length of Workshop:       1.5 hour 

A student veteran entering the first year of college is at a critical life marker and, much like any student, is dependent on a positive and successful experience to make graduation a likely outcome. It is especially important for colleges to recognize that student veterans bring their own set of characteristics that require special attention during the first year. This webinar will address ways to improve the graduation rate of your student veteran population with particular attention to the first year.


As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • List the specific classes veterans tend to both excel in and struggle with during their first year
  • Compare the overall GPAs of first and second year student veterans with positive and not so positive campus environment
  • Discuss the importance of selecting full or part-time status for each specific student veteran - what works best?
  • Describe a list of majors that most veterans are currently seeking
