Depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, and grade point average among student servicemembers and veterans

Craig J. Bryan, PsyD, ABPP, et al.

We surveyed 422 military personnel and veterans enrolled in college courses at universities across the United States during the 2012/2013 academic year. Military personnel and veterans reporting more severe depression and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms also reported lower grade point average (GPA). Depression had a relatively stronger relationship with GPA than PTSD. The relationship of depression with GPA was explained by higher rates of failing exams. Student servicemembers and veterans tend to have lower GPAs because they fail exams more frequently.
