This report provides descriptive national data on the prevalence and characteristics of services and support programs for military service members and veterans at postsecondary institutions in the United States. This survey provides the first nationally representative data on this topic. The data presented in this First Look were collected for the 12-month 2012-13 academic year (except where specified for fall of 2012) from postsecondary institutions on the services and programs offered to all military service members and veterans enrolled for credit, as well as dependents receiving military or veteran's financial education benefits. The survey covered customized support services such as academic support/tutoring, career planning/services, and mental health counseling; availability of mentoring programs; customization of admissions and orientation activities; availability of Veterans Affairs (VA) work-study opportunities; and tutorial assistance using VA educational benefits. Other topics included institutions' policies for charging veterans in-state tuition, course offerings specifically for military service members and veterans, and availability of training for postsecondary staff members on issues specific to veterans and service members. The survey also collected information about the number and type of students enrolled, and the number and type of dependents enrolled who received military or veteran's financial education benefits. Selected findings on services and support programs for military service members and veterans at 2-year and 4-year Title IV eligible degree-granting postsecondary institutions for the 12-month 2012-13 academic year are presented. Appended are: (1) Standard Error Tables; (2) Technical Notes; and (3) Questionnaire.
