The college is awarded a Military Friendly School designation
Northeast Community College earned a 2023-24 Military Friendly School designation. Institutions earning the designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 1,800 schools participated in the 2023-24 survey, and nearly 800 of them received special awards for their effective practices, achievements, and programs.
Methodology, criteria and weightings were determined by Viqtory with input from the Military Friendly Advisory Council of Independent Leaders in Higher Education. Final ratings were determined by combining institution survey scores with an assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence (advancement of graduation or transfer) and loan default rates for all students and especially veteran students.
“Northeast Community College is recognized as a premier educational leader and partner, with student completion and success being our top priority,” said Amanda Nipp, vice president of student services at Northeast. “We also understand that the transition from military to civilian life can be a challenge. Helping members of the military make the successful transition from civilian life to living and being a college student is the least we can do to thank them for their service to our country. Northeast is honored to once again be designated a Military Friendly college.”
Kayla Lopez, senior director of military partnerships for Military Friendly, said the schools honored have shown true commitment and dedication in their efforts.
The 2023-24 Military Friendly Schools list will be published in the May issue of GI Jobs magazine and can be found at militaryfriendly.com.
