Military Status: Why Schools Ask

Do you wonder why schools inquire about your military status on annual school forms or when your child enters a new school? The Military Student Identifier (MSI) and Federal Impact Aid Survey are two important factors, which provide valuable data and important funding to aid military-connected students.
