The Transition Readiness Seminar (TRS) is mandated for all separating military personnel. Prior to the seminar, participants will meet with their Unit Transition Coordinator to complete the pre-work requirements and sign-up for the seminar. The seminar curriculum includes: VA Benefits, Department of Labor Employment Workshop, Reserve Opportunities and Obligations, Tricare benefits for retirees, Marine for Life, and Personal Financial Management.

The seminar also has three Pathway Workshops that are offered on a quarterly basis. A service member may choose additional career tracks to support his or her post service goals.

  • Accessing Higher Education (Jan. 25, Apr. 19, Aug. 22, Nov. 14 | 9AM-3PM)

This workshop focuses on topics such as how to achieve academic success, how to research and compare institutions, and how to finance higher education. After completing the Accessing Higher Education workshop, Service Members will be prepared to complete an application to an accredited institution, schedule a session with a counselor from an academic institution, and make informed decisions for funding college.

Spouse Transition and Readiness Seminar (S.T.A.R.S.)

S.T.A.R.S. is an informational workshop designed to provide spouses of retiring or separating Service Members the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge of resources and pressing information as it relates to the upcoming transition.  A panel of subject matter experts regarding topics such as education and career programs, benefits and entitlements, and financial considerations, will be on hand to ensure that the transition from a military to a civilian lifestyle is as smooth as possible.  At present, this seminar is offered virtually in conjunction with Camp Lejeune.
