Transitioning from the Coast Guard to civilian life can be more challenging than expected. To prepare members separating or retiring from the Coast Guard for this transition, the VOW Act of 2011 and ALCOAST 383/14 requires that all eligible members complete the standardized components of the Transition Assistance Program (TAP).
Standardized components of the TAP:
(Please read prior to requesting a class!)
TGPS Request Form (NOTE: Personal/home email addresses are requested in the event emergent or weather issues require after-hours notification.)
**If your desired course is not listed in the TGPS Request Form, complete the form and hit "Submit". Then, in the email that is generated, include your desired course location and dates in the body.**
If requesting a DOD course, additional personal information may be required and will be requested by separate email from the Transition Manager
NOTE: Initiation of your DD-2648 e-Form and Pre-separation Counseling are prerequisites to requesting a Transition GPS seminar. If you have not completed these prerequisites, your request will be rejected and returned with no action taken. Instructions on completing both prerequisites can be found in the TGPS Pre-work (above).
