(Feb. 24, 2021) – Alamance Community College has been named a 2021-2022 Military Friendly® School for the 12th consecutive year. In addition, the College was named a Military Spouse Friendly School for the second time.
The list of military-friendly institutions is annually compiled by VIQTORY, a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business that connects the military community to civilian employment, educational and entrepreneurial opportunities. Institutions earning the Military Friendly® Schools designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a survey completed by the school.
Over 1,200 schools participated in the 2021-2022 survey and 747 earned the “Military Friendly” designation.
The Military Spouse Friendly Schools designation helps military spouses select schools that will support them in their education journey by meeting their unique needs as a part of a military family. Schools that are selected for the list are at the forefront of supporting the goals of military spouses.
Alamance Community College’s final rating was determined by combining the school’s survey scores with the assessment of ACC’s ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence (degree or advancement or transfer) and loan default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
