|Title:||Public-Use Data Files and Documentation (PEQIS 19): Services and Support Programs for Military Service Members and Veterans, 2012-13|
|Description:||This file contains data from a quick-response survey titled "Services and Support Programs for Military Service Members and Veterans, 2012-13." The survey was designed to provide descriptive national data on the prevalence and characteristics of services and support programs offered to all military service members and veterans enrolled for credit at postsecondary institutions in the United States, as well as dependents receiving military or veteran’s financial education benefits. For this survey, military service members and veterans refers to active-duty service members, reservists, members of the National Guard, and veterans. NCES released the results of the survey in the publication “Services and Support Programs for Military Service Members and Veterans at Postsecondary Institutions, 2012-13” (NCES 2014–017).
Questionnaires were mailed to the PEQIS institutions in early June 2013. Institutions were told that the survey was designed to be completed by the person(s) most knowledgeable about services and programs for military service members and veterans at the institution. Respondents had the option of completing the survey online. Telephone follow-up of nonrespondents was initiated in July 2013; data collection and clarification were completed in September 2013. The response rates were 93 percent unweighted and 90 percent weighted.
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.
