I am a wanna-be list-maker. When I force myself to sit down and organize my day’s or week’s goals, things run a lot more smoothly. For those of you who are looking to get back to school, spring semester is only three months away. There are so many things that you can do to prepare!
- Do a little self-discovery – If you don’t know exactly what career fits your long-term goals, be willing to assess your skills and interests to get some insight.
- Explore programs or courses
- The “military to college” checklist for Veterans has great advice for everyone!
- If you can’t find what you need, reach out for help (we are available 7 days a week for guidance)
- Complete the FAFSA. This is important, even if you don’t currently have income OR expect to use 100% military benefits.
Once you decide your direction:
- Apply for admission
- Send official transcripts
- Take placement tests (if required)
- Attend orientation
- Register for classes
If you are a Veteran or servicemember:
Depending on your time and type of service, residency and other factors, you may be eligible for a variety of benefits. Check with the High Education Veterans Programs Regional Coordinator for a one-on-one benefit consultation.
Good luck as you transform your random energy into focused direction. The future you will be great-ful (pun intended)!
