Military Veterans Face Challenges in Accessing Educational Benefits at Florida Community Colleges
Spiro, Rivka; Hill, Robert
Visions, v6 n1 p14-17 Fall 2010
Florida's community colleges are seeing an influx of students who face unique challenges. They are the men and women who served in the military after the attacks of September 11, 2001, and who are now attending college on the new Post-9/11 GI Bill, with its greatly enhanced educational benefits, and on the expanded, old Montgomery GI Bill, which remains in effect. This paper will explore the growing population of student veterans, the challenges they may face in adjusting to academic life, and the role played by community colleges in veterans' education. These issues will be framed in a national context.
