Victory Media ranks CCNY #6 military friendly school in the US

The City College of New York is ranked #6 in the nation by Victory Media in its 2018 Military Friendly® Schools survey. CCNY’s ranking is in the “large public” category.

The survey is the longest-running most comprehensive review of college and university investments in serving military and veteran students. “Our 2018 Military Friendly® Schools list is more exclusive than ever, and covers institutions offering certificate programs to doctoral degrees,” said Victory Media.

More than 1,600 schools completed the survey.

Some 130 former servicemen and women are enrolled at CCNY, according to Christopher Gorman, director of the Office of Veteran Affairs.

Several programs offered by City College and New York State help lighten the financial load for veterans attending CCNY. They include the New York State Veterans Tuition Awards for eligible veterans matriculated full time or part time in an approved program.

CCNY also runs a veteran club, officially the City College Veterans Association, that serves as an outlet for the public service spirit instilled in members while in uniform.

In addition, CCNY is the home of a CUNY-wide ROTC (Reserve Officers’ Training Corps) program. It currently has more than 100 cadets.
