Initiative Aims to Empower Student Veterans to Make Informed Decisions
Even after Corinthian Colleges announced its closure, several of their affiliate institutions continued to actively recruit students, and traveled to military installations to speak with active duty servicemembers. 

Because of this, SVA is announcing the creation of a "Not Recommended" schools list and will caution student veterans to avoid these institutions. 

"We applaud the role that various government agencies have played in the exposure of abusive practices, including the active leadership shown by several key Members of Congress," said SVA President and CEO, D. Wayne Robinson. "We also recognize that SVA is nimble and as an organization of over 1,000 chapters, we have the responsibility to put pressure on institutions who continue to demonstrate they do not create a campus environment conducive to veteran success. SVA's 'Not Recommended' list will call attention to these campuses so that student veterans can make informed decisions on how to best use their benefits."

SVA is also working closely with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to develop resources and information regarding how veterans will be affected by the closure of the Corinthian Colleges system.
