Simplifying the transition from the military to college


About Next Step Inbound:

We are student veterans studying at some of the nation’s top colleges. We were frustrated by how complicated the transition was from active duty to college, and we think it should be easier. Next Step Inbound is ready to help make your journey easier by sharing some of the amazing resources and organizations that helped us get where we are today. We want to see more veterans experience the incredible opportunities the top universities have to offer, and we are eager to help make that a reality.

Our team is made up of veterans from every branch of the military, and we come from a variety of backgrounds. Some of us barely made it through high school; others failed out of college. However, our time in the military gifted us a second chance. No matter what your story is, we are excited that you are here, and we want to help make your college dreams come true.
Welcome to Next Step Inbound.
