CF Recognized as Military Friendly School

Nov. 9, 2015

The College of Central Florida has been recognized as a military-friendly school by Victory Media for 2016. The designation ranks CF as among the top 20 percent of schools nationwide that deliver the best experience for military students. It is the sixth year the college has received the recognition.

The list of military-friendly schools was compiled through extensive research and survey of more than 10,000 Veterans Administration-approved schools nationwide. Criteria included military support on campus, academic credibility, percent of military students, academic credit for military students, flexibility for military students, veteran graduation rates, student tuition assistance and more.

“The College of Central Florida works hard to ensure our active servicemen and women, veterans and their families receive the best education and support services possible,” said Dr. Saul Reyes, vice president of Student Affairs at CF. “Currently, more than 300 CF students receive Veterans Administration benefits.”

In 2014, the college opened the Patriot Center for Veterans at its Ocala Campus, 3001 S.W. College Road. The center was established to serve students and their families and offers a venue for studying and fellowship, a small library, food pantry and more. The center also serves veterans who are no longer receiving education benefits.

The College of Central Florida is ranked No. 18 in the nation for overall affordability by the U.S. Department of Education.

Victoria Media is a veteran-owned media company that enjoins the military community of troops, veterans and their family members with content targeted to unique needs at critical military life.
