For the third straight year, Seminole State College of Florida has been recognized as a military-friendly college.
This honor, given by Victory Media Inc. and announced recently, recognizes colleges and universities that show strong commitment to the success of students with military experience.
More than 800 veterans were enrolled at Seminole State during the 2014-15 academic year.
"The Military Friendly designation really means a lot to us at Seminole State," says Christopher Brown, Veterans Affairs specialist. “It serves as a symbol of our ongoing commitment to meeting the academic and transitional needs of our veterans and their families.”
To receive the designation, applicants must exhibit support for current and former military personnel and their families through relevant on-campus support programs and policies, proper academic accreditation, credit-by-examination policies, flexibility of scheduling, and other services. Graduation and employment outcomes for alumni also are taken into consideration.
Schools featured on the list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience. The University of Central Florida, Seminole State's partner school through DirectConnect to UCF, also was named a Military Friendly School for 2016.
Now in its seventh year, the list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through a data-driven survey of schools nationwide approved for Veterans Administration tuition funding. In all, about 1,400 schools throughout the United States earned the designation.
The survey results were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based on the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media.
Seminole State College’s Veterans Affairs Offices, located on all four campuses, are dedicated to serving as a one-stop source for veterans to secure, interpret and exercise their VA education benefits. For more information, visit the Veterans Affairs website.
