Transition Assistance Program
Prior to separation, the Transition Readiness Seminar at MCAS Cherry Point is a 5-day mandatory program designed to ease the burden of transition by providing Service members and their families with employment, college, technical and entrepreneurial information and guidance. This interactive program will increase the Service member’s knowledge and confidence through active participation.
