CTC named military-friendly school for fifth consecutive year

Military Advanced Education (MAE) has selected Central Texas College (CTC) for inclusion in its 5th Annual Guide to America’s Top Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities. Each honored school was selected by a panel of judges from the fields of both education and the military based on each institution’s favorable policies towards the men and women of the military.

From community colleges to state universities and nationally-known centers of higher learning, MAE’s Annual Guide to America’s Top Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities provides service members with information about schools that go out of their way to give back to our men and women in uniform.

Among the attributes considered in evaluating this year’s schools for inclusion in the Guide are the number of ACE credits the school will accept, Servicemember Opportunity Colleges (SOC) participation, on-campus active duty/veteran assistance, the support provided to the families of our service members and the sophistication and effectiveness of its distance learning programs, to name but a few.

“The Guide has become an invaluable tool for both education service officers/specialists and base transition officers when advising service members about degree and certification opportunities currently available from institutions of higher learning,” said Glenn R. Berlin, MAE associate publisher.

CTC has served active and retired military and family members for more than 40 years and offers associate degrees and certificates designed for the military student via face-to-face and distance learning options and provides maximum credit for military education and training.

With campuses across the continental United States, the Pacific Far East to include mainland Japan, Okinawa and Korea, locations across Europe as well as deployed locations in Southwest Asia, CTC also offers classes on ships at sea and online to civilians and the military through the Army´s eArmyU program, MarineNet and the Navy´s PACE program. In addition to on-site operations in deployed locations, CTC has developed various other educational delivery methods such as classes on CD-ROM, personal digital assistants (PDAs) and ipods for military personnel who are unable to attend classes and do not have regular Internet access.

KMI Media Group, founded in 1996, offers eight highly-targeted publications serving specific verticals in the military. Military Advanced Education is the only magazine produced specifically for service members seeking to take advantage of the military education benefit. It covers issues and trends in distance learning and education as they specifically relate to military life, including innovative programs, military educational policy, financial aid and coursework offering special opportunities for military personnel.
