Abstract

This study summarizes the qualitative findings from a multi-institutional study about the college transition experiences of military and veteran students, specifically students’ articulation of their needs. Findings reveal (a) a lack of in-processing, (b) need for community, and (c) institutional invisibility. Using the Student Veteran Transition Model developed by Livingston, Havice, Cawthon, and Flemming (2011) as a guide, four recommendations for institutional practice are provided.
