Making the decision to go to college after leaving the military can be difficult. There are vast differences between enlisted life and college life. Going from the structure of day to day military life with your comrades to one filled with classrooms of young adults can be difficult to imagine. With your years of experience in the armed forces it’s important to evaluate what you are looking for in a school and degree program. You may find yourself more comfortable in a distance or online learning environment than one where you commute to campus on a daily basis.
