If you have recently completed military service and are considering returning to school, you may be concerned about transitioning into a classroom environment. At Wayland Baptist University, we strive to provide the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces with the support and advice necessary for a successful transition from the military to college.
- Take Advantage of Your Benefits
There are a number of financial aid benefits available to veterans, such as the GI Bill. Utilizing these benefits to pay for your college tuition can help make the transition to the classroom an easier process, as you will have fewer financial worries. If you are planning to use benefits that you have earned through active duty, be sure to keep track of any deadlines that may apply. There may also be privately funded scholarships available for veterans.
- Ease Into College
While you may want to jump right into the college experience, consider easing into college life instead. You may find it easier to begin as a part-time student and work up to a full-time class schedule over the course of a few semesters. This allows you to readjust to completing assignments for classes and study for exams at your own pace.
- Utilize Student and Veteran Resources
Veterans face unique concerns when enrolling in college. At Wayland Baptist University, we have designed programs that are tailored to meet the needs of those in the Armed Forces. We can help you determine if you qualify for college credits based on your military service and can provide funding support. You may also find outside programs and organizations that are geared specifically towards helping veterans readjust to civilian life and successfully obtain college degrees.
At Wayland Baptist University, we support both veterans and active duty members in their college careers. To learn more about transitioning from the military to the college classroom, call Wayland Baptist University in San Antonio today at (210) 782-9665.
