Making the Transition to College

Transitioning to civilian life after years in the military is a difficult thing. Making the jump to college at the same time can either be an added stress or a helpful support. For many veterans, higher education provides an opportunity to reflect and process one’s life experiences in a safe space. Finding a community of other veterans or military families also eases the transition and provides much-needed support.

Below are some resources that could prove valuable to you as you consider enrolling in college.

Student Veteran Resource Center Facebook page

Our veteran resource center page is a gathering place for active duty, veteran, and military dependents students.

Academic Advising

Each student is assigned to a specific academic advisor who helps him/her navigate the college process and make a plan that fits with his/her career goals. This person connects with students once they are accepted.

In addition to offering counseling services, the Holton Health & Wellness Center offers basic medical care to Spring Arbor students.
