Which degree pathways are most popular among military and veterans? How can a veteran or active duty servicemember apply their evaluated training for college credit?
Those are among the many questions commonly posed to admission counselors at higher education institutions large and small throughout the country. The fact is, transitioning out of the service and back to civilian life can be incredibly challenging for veterans, and many are left with more questions than answers.
That was the primary reasoning behind Excelsior College’s “You’re Back – What’s Next” webinar series, launched by the school’s Center for Military Education in mid-2012. From getting a better understanding of Post 9/11 Veteran Education Benefits to learning how to demonstrate value in the job market, Excelsior is trying to establish itself as a valuable resource to returning veterans and their families.
The fourth installment of the series, “Veteran- and Military-Friendly Degrees” is scheduled for June 19 at 7 pm eastern. The event will feature academic advisors from each of Excelsior’s four schools and a military academic advisor discussing a variety of educational options, including transferring credit earned through military training, popular degree programs, specific degree requirements, and potential career pathways for each degree.
