5 Facts About Transitioning Out of the Military That You Must Know

2. PREP FOR COLLEGE

As for college plans, while some schools have a rolling enrollment, if you are looking to start a program at a traditional brick and mortar school, you may have to meet specific application deadlines. Look into the schools in your area (or the area you plan to move to after separation) and make sure you do your research on the programs before you apply.

  • Call the school and ask about the military affairs department.
  • Find out what benefits they might have for veterans that their main website doesn’t advertise.

If you’re looking at online programs, find out what they require for you to be considered a full-time student AND if they have any distance learning programs near you that would allow you to claim status as a residential student.

The reason you want that information is because for those using the Post 9/11 GI Bill a big perk is the BAH.

Online students do not receive the same amount of BAH as a residential student. They receive half the national average for BAH and in some areas that means taking a big cut in allowances.

If you aren’t sure about where to start with the college process you can always go to Military One Source or your local Fleet and Family Service center for help. They have trained employees who will walk you through the whole thing and help make sure you are on the right path for success.
