College Receives Military Friendly School Recognition

MCC has been recognized as a 2014 Military Friendly School from G.I. Jobs, the premier magazine for military personnel transitioning into civilian life. The 2014 recognition honors the top colleges, universities and trade schools in the nation for their dedication to providing military service members and veterans with a quality education.

MCC is ranked in the top 15 percent of schools nationwide via a recent survey of over 12,000 schools. The data-driven survey is administered by Victory Media, a veteran-owned business and publisher of G.I. Jobs and the Guide to Military Friendly Schools®. The survey weighting, methodology, and resulting schools list is independently certified by Ernst and Young. Competition for the 2014 Military Friendly Schools® list was fierce and placed MCC among the elite competing for military students.   

MCC has approximately 1,000 veteran students enrolled, representing all five service branches. The Southern and Dobson and Red Mountain campuses offer veterans one-stop services and centers for students to congregate.
