Many of our veteran students come to higher education after serving our country, starting families, and having diverse real-world experiences. It’s not uncommon for veterans to take on the role of being a self-advocate as they overcome the transition from military life to civilian life. It’s no different as veterans access college, trade, or technical schools. It’s not always easy to know your first move when thinking about college. Many veterans are used to figuring it out on their own. Yet, college is a bit different because one wrong class or ill-advised major can cost a veteran time, effort, and benefits.
