PSC listed in Military Times Best: Colleges 2018

Military Times names Pensacola State College in its Military Times Best: Colleges 2018 list, formerly known as Best for Vets. The rankings are an editorially independent news project that evaluates a comprehensive survey of veteran and military student services and rates of academic achievement along with other factors that make colleges and universities a good fit for service members, military veterans and their families.

According to Military Times, the rankings were more competitive than ever this year, as a record number of schools participated in the survey, and less than half made the cut. “Of the hundreds of schools that applied, fewer than half received the Military Times Best: Colleges designation this year. Only the best made the cut,” said George Altman, the Military Times editor in charge of the rankings.
