Middlesex County College earns Military Friendly School designation for eighth year


Middlesex County College (MCC) has earned the 2020-21 Military Friendly School label for the eighth year.

Institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey, according to information provided by the college. More than 1,000 schools participated in the 2020-21 survey, with 695 earning the distinction, according to the statement.

The 2020-21 list will be published in the May issue of “G.I. Jobs” magazine and can be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.

“Our ability to apply a clear, consistent standard to colleges creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages colleges to invest in programs to provide educational outcomes that are better for the military community as a whole,” Josh Rosen, Military Friendly’s national director, said in the statement.

Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’s 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, according to the statement.

“This designation is impressive because it shows the dedication that the faculty and staff have toward our military-affiliated students,” Michael Barany, coordinator of Veterans Services at MCC, said in the statement.
