El Paso Community College (EPCC) announced on Friday that it has earned 2018 Military Friendly School Gold designation by Victory Media and a Top School designation by Military Advanced Education and Transition Journal.
“EPCC is committed to providing targeted support to veterans, military members and their families including clearing roadblocks to registration, developing clear pathways for degree or program completion, enhancing career exploration and improving networks for course acceptance and transfer,” Dr. William Serrata, EPCC President said.
The Victory Media Military Friendly Schools list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources for more than 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans, and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly Schools survey from participating institutions.
To achieve Gold status, EPCC’s score was within 20% of the 10th ranked school.
Military Advanced Education & Transition Journal Top School designations are a results of a questionnaire of the military-supportive policies enacted at hundreds of institutions including private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year, and two-year colleges.
Military Advanced Education & Transition is the journal of higher education for service members and veterans making the transition from military to the civilian sector.
