For the fourth straight year, Seminole State College of Florida has been recognized as a military-friendly college.
This prestigious honor, given by Victory Media Inc., recognizes colleges and universities that show strong commitment to the success of students with military experience.
Nearly 1,000 veterans and their dependents attend Seminole State.
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 2017.
For more than a decade, Victory Media’s Military Friendly® ratings recognize companies and colleges with leading programs for veterans, members of the Armed Forces leaving military service and military spouses. Over 1,200 schools earned this year’s designation.
The survey results were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based on the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media. Please visit militaryfriendly.com for more information.
