The Correlation of Social, Financial, and Academic Supports to Military Benefit Recipients' Persistence in College
Mentzer, Bruce Duane
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Liberty University
This study sought to determine the strength and nature of the relationships between social, academic, and financial support and the intent of military students to persist in higher education at a large private non-profit university. The study also collected data from nonmilitary students to note contrasting relationships and looked at overall results for the two groups combined. Multivariate stepwise models confirmed the emphasis on academic support for persistence towards degree completion with all groups. Financial aid affects varied by military, nonmilitary, and for the overall population; military students were negatively impacted by loans, nonmilitary by university scholarships, and the overall sample by government grants and aid. Lastly, an overarching and strong relationship was noted as an additional finding in this study for institutional support for military, nonmilitary, and combined groups.
