The Transitioning Student Veteran in Higher Education text is guided by a single principle, to serve as an aid to the student veteran who is transitioning from active duty through higher education into a civilian career. 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 wartime service, making meaning of those experiences and continuing the journey towards being a lifelong learner, veterans will be fulfilled and successful in their transition to civilian life.

 This text is most valuable to the student veteran or the campus that wants to focus their energies on the real success of student veterans: graduating and finding a job.

 Written in a style that speaks directly to the student, this is not an attempt to over analyze student veterans with anecdotal observations and small scale research – this is a practical guide that has been endorsed by senior military leaders and veterans advocates and is being reviewed by numerous institutions for adoption into their curriculum and by US government agencies looking to support the transition of student veterans.

After necessarily setting the tone with a few chapters that are largely well known to practitioners in the field, the book really gains credibility with the reader starting with Chapter 4 through the conclusion.
