TGPS Education Track

Recently, the Transition Assistance Program offered to all military veterans upon separation has been re-vamped into Transition GPS (Goals, Plans, Success). One of the major changes to this program is the adoption of Individual Transition Plans based upon three areas of interest post-service: employment, entrepreneurship, or education.

As you are completing your Individual Transition Plan (ITP), there is a lot of information to sort through. We live by the “work smarter, not harder” philosophy, so we created a specific TGPS Information Sheet to assist you in gathering the information to complete the Education Section (Block 16b and 16d of the checklist DD2958). You will notice that the information is aligned with the “Institution Selection Matrix” of your Participant Workbook. It even includes specific contact information for the School Certifying Official, Adviser/Counselor, and Student Veteran Organization. However, this is simply a snapshot to provide you with the most frequently asked questions.

We are happy to answer any additional questions and speak with you directly. Please feel free to share the information sheet with any other transitioning veterans in your unit.
