Garden City Community College has been named to the Military Friendly Schools list.

The 2014 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of

colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing

the most to embrace America's military service members, veterans and

spouses as students and ensure their success on campus. GCCC also was

designated "Military Friendly" in 2013.

The Military Friendly Schools' media and website, found at, feature the list, interactive tools and

search functionality to help military students find the best school to

suit their unique needs and preferences.

The 1,868 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year's

list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of

students with military experience. These schools have world-class

programs and policies for student support on campus, academic

accreditation, credit policies, flexibility and other services to those

who served.

Now in its fifth year, the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools was

compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more

than 10,000 schools nationwide approved for VA tuition funding.

The survey results that comprise the 2014 list were independently

tested by Ernst Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology

established by Victory Media.
