HCC named top military friendly college

(Release: December 13, 2013) - Military Advanced Education (MAE) has awarded Hagerstown Community College the designation of a Top Military-Friendly College in its 2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges and Universities, just released in print, and available online at www.mae-kmi.com.   

From community colleges to state universities, online universities and nationally known centers of higher learning, MAE’s 2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges and Universities provides potential students with information about institutions that go out of their way to provide service to the armed forces.

Among the attributes considered in evaluating an institution for inclusion in the guide are the flexibility of online learning options, extent of transfer credits accepted by degree level, on-campus ROTC, Servicemember Opportunity Colleges (SOC) participation, on-campus active duty/veteran assistance, the support provided to the families of servicemembers, faculty trained in veteran reintegration issues, presence on military installations, and  full-time counselors trained in veteran-specific mental health concerns.
