MCC Selected as Military-Friendly School by Magazine

Military Advanced Education (MAE) has awarded Middlesex County College the designation of a Top Military-Friendly College in its 2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities, 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 & Universities provides potential students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to the men and women in uniform.

"Our staff used strict criteria to evaluate the submissions of the respondents, and we had a record number of schools participating this year," said Kelly Fodel, MAE's editor. "We believe the Guide serves as an invaluable tool for both education services officers (ESOs) and transition officers when advising servicemembers about their educational opportunities. I encourage students and ESOs to check out our searchable database online. We designed this database with the military student in mind. We want to help them make informed choices, so we are giving them access to all the survey questions and answers provided by the schools, as well as explanations about critical issues like the schools' activation and deployment policies, withdrawal policies, scholarship and financial aid information, and support information."

David Brimmer, director of the College's Center for Veterans Services, was very pleased with the honor.

"Our office takes pride in the work we do with our military-affiliated students," he said. "Our goal is to make sure they feel welcome on campus, have access to their educational entitlements, and to ensure they have a positive experience at MCC."
