Veterans Education Success advocates for military-connected students who have been defrauded by their college – through negotiations, such as when we helped veterans at Stanford University get their full housing allowance, and through legal action to protect the rights of our students. We also work with corporate whistleblowers and federal and state law enforcement. Although we cannot share confidential legal information, we can share our public filings.
If you are active duty, veteran, or a military family member and having issues with your education benefits, contact us for free help now.
