Centralia College has earned the 2017 Military Friendly® School designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs®, STEM JobsSM , and Military Spouse.
Centralia College has earned the Military Friendly® designation since 2011.
“Our veterans are a big part of who we are as a college, and they have been ever since the college was founded,” said Centralia College President Dr. Bob Mohrbacher.
The list of Military Friendly® Schools is provided to service members and their families, helping them select the best college, university, or trade school to receive the education and training needed to pursue a civilian career.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from Victory Media’s proprietary survey. More than 1,600 schools participated in the 2017 survey; 1,160 were awarded with the designation. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with its ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence (degree advancement or transfer), and loan default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
