Military Advanced Education & Transition (MAE&T) has awarded Quinsigamond Community College the designation of a Top School in its 2017 Guide to Colleges & Universities, measuring best practices in military and veteran education.
The guide presents 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.
From community colleges to state universities, online universities and nationally known centers of higher learning, MAE&T’s 2017 Guide to Colleges & Universities arms students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to men and women in uniform.
Now in its tenth year of publishing the guide, MAE&T was the first publication to launch a reference tool of this type. This year, institutions were evaluated on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, general support, on-campus support and online support services. Each school’s performance rating by category is represented by an easy-to-recognize dashboard. This enables prospective students to quickly target schools that follow best practices in military education, and then put these in context with other academic or career considerations.
“MAE&T’s Guide to Colleges and Universities provides the foundational information a prospective student would use in framing his or her educational needs,” said Kelly Fodel, Military Advanced Education & Transition’s editor-in-chief. “We want to be a dynamic resource for those looking to further their educations and careers. A key part of that is finding the right school, and it can be a confusing process for military members to navigate.”
The 2017 Guide is printed in the December issue of Military Advanced Education &Transition, and is also published in a searchable database online. Students have access to all the survey questions and answers provided by the schools, as well as explanations about critical issues, such as activation and deployment policies, withdrawal policies, scholarship and financial aid information and important support information.
