IVETS Academic Support

IVETS Academic Support

There are several academic support opportunities designed for Veterans at IOWA which the IVETS team can help you get involved with!

Strategies for Veteran Success (CSI: 1270:0001)

This course is designed to help student veterans and service members in their academic transition from active duty military or guard/reserve status to the University of Iowa, to promote academic success and improve retention of student veterans, and to assist in cultivating a systematic approach to career planning and decision-making. The primary focuses are on the resources available to students, identification of goals and strengths, and problem-solving related to personal issues or barriers that could impede student veteran transitions and academic performance. 

In the spring 2020 semester this course runs from 1:30-3:20 on Wednesdays. The course is 2 credit hours and graded as Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory.
