Georgia Military College awarded Military Friendly Schools designation

MILLEDGEVILLE — Georgia Military College has been honored with a Military Friendly Schools Designation.

Victory Media, a media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named all six Georgia Military College campuses — Milledgeville, Augusta, Columbus, Fairburn, Warner Robins and Valdosta — to the coveted 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. 

“We work hard to provide accurate information about cost of attendance, sources of aid, and the processes by which aid is applied to those costs because it matters to us that students can trust the information provided to them and the college personnel with whom they deal. Being named a Military Friendly school signifies that we have met a high standard for establishing and maintaining that trust,” said Brian Hendricks, on-post coordinator for Georgia Military College's Augusta-Fort Gordon campus.

Donavan Ford, a student at Georgia Military College's Columbus campus agrees that GMC is a great fit for military-affiliated students. 

“I thought my transition from the military to college was going to be the hardest thing,” said Ford.

“Inclusion on the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Georgia Military College's commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, vice president at Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran. “The need for education is growing and our mission is to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools.”  

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. A full list of board members can be found at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com/board.
