SCC designated Military Friendly

Published: 10/15/2013

 

“We are committed to providing a quality education and supporting veterans and military students at SCC,” said Ron Chesbrough, SCC president. “We are very proud to be named to the 2014 Military Friendly Schools list and I appreciate all of the good work that went into making this important designation possible.” 

The Military Friendly Schools® media and website, found at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com, feature the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences. The 1,868 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience.  These schools have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility and other services to those who served.

SCC’s Enrollment Services Department created a one-stop shop for veterans and current service members. SCC began the Honoring Military Families Scholarship in February 2012. A Student Veteran Organization was organized in the fall of 2012, and in spring 2013 SCC opened a Student Veteran Lounge and began a veteran-specific orientation. SCC also hosts Veterans Week, a series of events in the fall.
