Identification of Student Veterans & Service Members

Key Points to Consider:

  1. How is each service member/veteran group initially identified at your institution (source)? Note that someone might be in more than one group or move among groups.
  2. How is each group identified in your institution's student information system (SIS)?
  3. Who is responsible to manage the tracking of each group (e.g. "building," "maintenance/adjusting," and "closing")?
  4. How will the Ohio Board of Regents want institutions to report on these students? Will your institution's identification structure support that?
  5. The various types of military benefits within categories can likely be managed by the type of benefit received, if necessary.
