Nash Community College Named Military Friendly® School

Nash Community College has again been named a Military Friendly School. 
The college is among 766 schools to make the 2019-2020 Military Friendly ® Schools list. The prestigious list provides a comprehensive guide for veterans and sets the standard for higher education institutions to provide the best opportunities for veterans and their spouses. 
Higher education institutions earning the Military Friendly ® School designation are evaluated using public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey completed by the school. 
NCC was selected based on its survey scores and an assessment of the college’s ability to meet thresholds for Student Retention, Graduation, Job Placement, Loan Repayment, Persistence (Degree Advancement or Transfer) and Loan Default Rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
The Military Friendly ® Schools list is created each year based on extensive research using data from more than 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans, and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly® Schools survey from participating institutions.
The survey questions, methodology, criteria, and weighting were developed with the assistance of an independent research firm and an advisory council of educators and employers. 
NCC is confident and proud of the relationship the college is building with men and women in uniform who bravely serve in the United States Military, and their families.
The college is dedicated to providing the highest quality comprehensive support to student veterans in an atmosphere of commitment, respect and academic excellence. NCC offers training opportunities for veterans, eligible National Guard/Reservists and eligible dependents (spouse and/or children) of 100 percent service-connected disabled or deceased veterans.
