The Transitioning Student Veteran in Higher Education

The Transitioning Student Veteran in Higher Education

by Karina Money, Ed.D. and LTC (ret) Andrew Griffin, Ed.D.

The Transitioning Student Veteran is guided by a single principle, to serve as an aid to the student veteran who is transitioning from active duty into higher education. This book is specifically tailored to help student veterans incorporate their personal journey of transition from military to college and design their path to academic and civilian career success. By emphasizing on wartime service, making meaning of those experiences and continuing the journey towards of being a lifelong learner, students will be fulfilled and successful in their transition to civilian life.


We did not have this kind of transition “tool bag” to assist our veterans in the past, laid out in a logical, highly usable style. We do now, and I highly recommend this superb effort to any and all veterans anywhere along the process of transition.

David D. McKiernan, General (Ret), U.S. Army

This book is a must read for service members and veterans who are thinking about bettering themselves through higher education and a great resource tool for college administrators.

Colonel Steven Weintraub, U.S. Marine Corps Reserve

This is a must read for all those separating from the military!  The chapters in this book speak directly to the student veteran giving not only a realistic picture of the journey to higher education and beyond but also providing a holistic approach to student and professional success.
