Bristol Community College named to 2013 Military Friendly Schools List
Victory Media, a media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named Bristol Community College to the coveted Military Friendly Schools list. The 2013 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.
“Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Bristol Community College’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, Director for G.I. Jobs and Vice President at Victory Media.
The 1,739 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience. The included schools have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility, and other services to those who served.
The Office of Veteran’s Affairs at BCC provides students with academic counseling and educational benefit certification. To receive education benefits, you must be certified by one of our Veteran’s Certifying Officials. Eligibility and benefit payments are based on the length and time of your service and the number of credits and length of the courses in which you are registered.
