DATE: September 5, 2017

Summary:

The Department of Veterans Affairs produces a file showing all institutions/organizations where veterans have claimed education benefits over the past year. It is not located with other Veteran’s Affairs agency reports but on a consumer-facing page. The universe of institutions/programs in this data set is much larger th an that in IPEDS, which only includes institutions eligible for Title IV financial aid.
