If college is not easy for a regular student, just imagine how difficult it would be for student veterans. Military veterans face tough challenges in school compared to their non-vet peers.
According to the American Council on Education, 4% of undergrad student vets across the country have expressed their difficulty in connecting in their campus and is one of the major reasons behind the increasing dropout rates, USA Today College reported. There is also a lower percentage of student vets who finished their college compared to the non-veteran students.
