The college graduation rate for military veterans is unsatisfactory. While the life transition for veterans goes far beyond academics, by lessening the stress of the academic transition, the likelihood of collegiate success is significantly increased. The goal of The Strategic Student Veteran is to help raise graduation rates amongst our nation's veterans.

The reason so many college students underperform is because they're not taught how to transition from the structured military environment to the unstructured college academic environment. The Strategic Student teaches college-bound military veterans how to make this transition and become self-reliant, successful students.
