Abstract

Abstract:

Using discrete-time hazard models, this exploratory study responds to the need for research on student veterans. Factors predicting persistence and graduation at a public university in Texas, serving a large student veteran population in the state, are examined; student veteran transfers' outcomes are compared to those of non-veteran transfer students to understand this population in the context of their characteristics as transfer students. Findings disrupt the prevailing narrative that veterans are not as successful as their peers, suggesting more research is needed to determine how to better support veterans in higher education.
