Books Info:

From the Navy to College free pdf From the Navy to College: Transitioning from the Service to Higher Education is an education and career reference guide for Sailors looking to join the Navy, already on active duty, or transitioning into the civilian sector. Serving as a long-term support guide for Sailors seeking further education and training, this book will enable Sailors hoping to pursue higher education and vocational training to navigate and understand all possible options. From getting started to degree completion, all available funding resources to help cover costs and Navy-based program options are detailed for the reader in order to assist throughout the course of an individual's chosen path. The Navy offers numerous programs for its service members while on active duty, but very few sailors are aware of the variety of those options or how to take advantage of them. No Navy manual exists that details these programs, outlines eligibility parameters, or describes the admissions process. From the Navy to College aims to correct this problem by disseminating the needed information in one easily accessible reference. Arming readers with the tools for success, this work is a necessary resource for all Sailors and Navy counseling personnel.
