Accessing Higher Education
By selecting this Track, you have decided that higher education will be part of your career development path. This course is designed to guide you through the variety of decisions involved in choosing a degree completion program, preparing for the college admissions application process, and identifying funding sources.
Career Technical Training
The course is designed for individuals interested in a trade or technical field in order to obtain employment. Service members select reputable Technical Schools to compare several factors: number of credits needed for completion, credit transfers, time it takes to complete the program, tuition costs and fees, GI Bill acceptance and admission standards.
Capstone is the final step in the transition process and is mandatory. This event evaluates preparedness to successfully transition from the military to civilian sector and to validate that Career Readiness Standards are met. If additional resources are needed, transition staff will provide the appropriate referrals to partner agencies as resources. Capstone should be conducted 90-120 days before separation. Contact your local TAP office to schedule your appointment.
