LCCC AWARDED MILITARY FRIENDLY SCHOOLS ® TITLE FROM VICTORY MEDIA INC.
Lorain County Community College has been named to the 2014 Military Friendly Schools list by Victory Media, Inc.
The Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus. This is the third consecutive year that LCCC has been recognized for its service to military personnel.
LCCC utilizes a one-stop shop environment, where busy veterans can enroll, utilize their financial aid benefits and visit with a Veteran’s Certifying Official.
Since opening its doors in 1963, LCCC has served more than 5,000 veterans, most of who have served in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. Stephanie Sutton, LCCC Dean of Enrollment and Financial Services, said the college puts a great deal of importance on serving veterans.
“At LCCC, we are committed to assisting our veterans in reaching their educational goals and we will continue to do all we can to make their transitions to being a student as smooth as possible,” Sutton said.
In addition to financial aid services, LCCC offers veterans tuition forgiveness when military personnel are called to active duty; text book buy back services before they leave for deployment; counseling services; and designated sections of student development classes for veterans only.
The Military Friendly Schools ® media and website, found at http://www.militaryfriendlyschools.com/, feature the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences. Victory Media includes the publications G.I. Jobs, The Guide to Military Friendly Schools, Military Spouse magazine and Vetrepreneur magazine.
