Academic Preparation & Tutoring
Many military students, upon entering college or other postsecondary institutions, find they may need tutoring and/or additional educational support outside the classroom. Many schools across the country are developing tutoring programs designed specifically for student veterans. Whether walk-in or by schedule, getting the word out to veteran students that academic resources are available to support them is an important step. Some schools offer priority registration for student veterans who sign up for weekly tutoring sessions.
While most institutions offer free tutoring services, students using educational benefits (including dependents) and in need of more intensive tutoring services may be eligible to receive additional assistance from the VA to defray tutoring expenses. Whatever you do, let student veterans know these resources exist. ACE Veteran Success Jam participants were clear that getting information out to the veteran community was critical, since tutoring can often be the missing link between dropping out and graduating.
