What We Are, What We Do, and Why We Matter

The Military Transition Resource Center is a virtual resource center that provides recently discharged or retired military personnel with useful tools and principles for the exciting transition from military life to civilian life.  We will walk you through basic steps and lessons and provide you with suggestions, links and information that will point you in the right direction and lead you to a richly rewarding civilian life!

Our Expertise and Additional Assistance

As an affiliate of Empire State College, our expertise is in academics; therefore, the focus of the Military Transition Resource Center is to develop higher educational opportunities in order to help you meet your goals.  For your benefit, however, we also include on this site ample online content and links to several web-based transition resources in such areas as stress management and career advice.  There is plenty here for you!  If you have any questions or comments regarding our center, please let us know.
