Title of Study: Service Member to Student Survey: Veterans’ Perceptions of Transition, Higher Education, and Success

Instructions: Please review and respond below.

Purpose of Research: This study is being conducted by researchers at Syracuse University and the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) to gather information from military service members about their service and post-service experiences related to education. The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete or slightly longer, depending on your responses. You do not need to finish this survey in one sitting and may stop and continue the survey as long as you are on the same computer. We are collecting this information solely to improve educational experiences and outcomes for veterans. Support for this research has been provided by a Google Global Impact Award and includes our partners, Student Veterans of America (SVA).

Confidentiality: The information that you provide is collected anonymously. No personal-identifiable information will be requested, and all information will be stored and analyzed in a confidential fashion. The data resulting from this research may be reported and made public—but without any identifying information about study participants. Whenever working with online information, there are privacy risks—but all efforts will be made to ensure confidentiality.

Voluntary Participation: Your participation is entirely voluntary, and you may exit the survey at any time.  You may also skip questions that you prefer not to answer.
