Three Colleges Designated as Military Friendly for 2015

NVC, PAC and SPC have received the coveted Military Friendly Schools designation  for 2015. This list honors the top colleges,  universities and trade schools in the country that provide excellence service to military service members, veterans and spouses who are students. The institutions on this year's list exhibit best practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience. 

NVC was recognized for  its wide range of services offered for the more than 1,000 active military and veterans on the campus. This includes a Vet to Vet (V2V) program that has identified retired military faculty and staff that serve as volunteer advocates to support active duty or veteran students.

This is a system in operation 1972-2015 to deliver degree programs to service members, funded by the Pentagon through a contract with the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. SPC is also an original member of the College Credit for Heroes initiative consortium. It  offers service members academic credit for experience, education and training obtained though military service through applied science degrees in four fields.
