Pensacola State College has been named a 2019 Military Friendly® School by Viqtory Media.
This is the 10th consecutive year Pensacola State has received the designation awarded to U.S. colleges, universities and trade schools that dedicate resources to military students to ensure success in the classroom and after graduation. The College was named a “Military Friendly School – Bronze” recipient for the 2019-2020 academic year.
Pensacola State has more than 2,000 veterans, active duty personnel and their dependents enrolled in classes, said College President Ed Meadows.
“We value our military service members and their families and strive to provide outstanding support and services to these students,” he said. “Members of the armed forces play a vital role in our college community as well as that of Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. “
The Military Friendly® Schools listing is based on extensive research using public data from more than 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student-veterans, and responses to a data-driven survey. Final rankings were determined by combining survey scores with the assessment of an institution’s ability to meet thresholds for Student Retention, Graduation, Job Placement, Loan Repayment and Persistence (degree advancement or transfer rates) for all students and, specifically student-veterans.
The 2019-2020 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in G.I. Jobs magazine’s May edition. The list also can be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.
