Transition Home

What are some ways that Sean can help you?

Prior Learning Assessment

Sean is able to provide guidance to you on any questions or concerns you may have regarding experience from the military that may be deemed as academic credits, be it from DD214 / Joint Service Transcripts / LES / other documents.  He is the official staff member who inputs your documents into MTSU's system (please note, a DD214 and a JST/CCAF is required off all veterans using benefits).

Residency/In-State Tuition

For all students within our community, Sean will also be handling your residency requests.  Through Tennessee's Public Chapter-31 (PC-31) and other state and Federal laws, Sean may be able to assist you-- active duty, veterans and dependents-- in gaining in-state tuition. 

Sponsorship Program

Sean will be leading a team of your peers on campus to seek out and encourage those in our community to strive for success while attending MTSU.  Study habits, academic issues of faculty or staff, assisting with off campus issues of home or family, Sean and everyone in the program are there for you to discuss options with during your academic journey.

General Welfare

Sean is here to serve you in your academic journey and to ensure that if there are any concerns you may have, we are able to develop a unique plan that will encourage and guide you, no matter the obstacles.  Sean's goal is to see you on graduation day walking across the stage to attain your degree and be the standard of True Blue.

Campus Experience

Sean is a recent graduate of MTSU and has served our community for over four years as a Daniels Center work-study student or liaison-- relaying the issues observed and heard on campus.  From advice, networking into departments or fellow student veterans, housing, child care, or discussing potential changes in services being addressed, Sean strives to improve the quality of service we provide you and every member of our military community.
