Just this week, Columbia College was named to Military Times’ “Best for Vets: Colleges 2015” list. CC went from 7th on the list last year to 4th after filling out a comprehensive questionnaire (more than 100 questions) along with several hundred other colleges and universities.
These annual rankings were based on university culture, academic quality, student support, academic policies and financial aid. This marks the third year the college has been ranked in the online and nontraditional category.
The “Best for Vets” list was created by Military Times to provide service members with comprehensive information on schools and degree programs that would be most beneficial to them. In addition to the factors listed above, institutions also were evaluated on accreditation, student-faculty ratio, graduation rates, academic and staff support and participation the Yellow Ribbon program. Columbia College offers extensive resources for its military and veteran students.
