Student Veterans of America’s Military to College Guide provides the following suggestions for those navigating the transition from deployment to student life:

  • Start with a few courses to ease the transition
  • Reach out to other veterans on your campus to establish a network of people you can rely on, just as you would have in your military life
  • Get to know your new professors and ask them for help
  • When studying, take notes, take frequent breaks and find a study partner
  • Take advantage of your school’s academic, tutoring and counseling services
  • Recognize your own signs of physical and psychological stress and seek help if you are overwhelmed
  • Practice regular exercise and relaxation techniques to help reduce anxiety and improve concentration
  • Participate in student activities to break down barriers and become part of the campus community
  • Recognize that others may not agree with you or understand your military service. Agree to disagree and respectfully decline to answer any questions that make you uncomfortable
