Veterans without degrees are much more likely to hold non-degree credentials than their non-veteran peers, according to a survey.
Those non-degree credentials provide meaningful financial returns: veterans with certificates or certifications earn an average of $10,000 more per year than veterans with no postsecondary credentials.
Prior research has shown that the skills and knowledge veterans gain in the military are often under-recognized and undervalued by civilian employers. Veterans in particular are harmed by the lack of recognition and transparency of non-degree credentials.
The new report from Strada Education Network and Lumina Foundation, “Veterans Without Degrees: The Benefits and Opportunities of Certificates and Certifications,” draws on veterans’ perspectives to understand the value of non-degree credentials as a means of translating military-based learning and the civilian labor market.
