When they leave the service, many veterans take advantage of benefits such as the GI Bill to earn a college degree, build upon their existing education or gain certifications that will help them in their chosen civilian career.

But navigating all of the options can be confusing and time-consuming. Veterans have to decide what education they want to pursue, what their benefits will cover, whether they can share or transfer benefits to spouses or children and even whether they want to attend classes in-person or remote, with all of these choices having their pros and cons. While the military provides transition assistance programs, the final decision is up to each individual veteran, and the number of decisions to make can be overwhelming.

In this webcast, Military Times explored how veterans can navigate higher education after their time in the service, including determining the right career path, understanding educational benefits and what veterans need to know before their first day of classes.
