Quinsigamond Community College's Veteran Affairs department recently learned that it has earned the 2020-2021 Military Friendly® School designation. Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 1,000 schools participated in the 2020-2021 survey with 695 earning the designation.

"This is an honor to be designated as a military friendly institution. We try our best and do whatever it takes to help our student vets be successful," said Paula Ogden, director of Veteran Affairs.

Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Viqtory with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining each institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’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.

QCC's Veteran Affairs and Veterans Club offer veterans a robust array of services that range from academics, fellowship and comradery to social events and social service activities.To learn more visit Veteran Affairs
