Military Advanced Education & Transition (MAE&T) has awarded Montgomery College the designation of a top school in its 2016 MAE&T Guide to Colleges & Universities, measuring best practices in military and veteran education.
The guide presents results of a questionnaire of the military-supportive policies enacted at more than 600 institutions including private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year, and two-year colleges. MAE&T’s 2016 Guide to Colleges & Universities arms students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to men and women in uniform.
“Our goal is to be a dynamic resource for active service members and those who have moved from the military to their civilian careers, helping them find the school that best fits their plans for the future,” said Kelly Fodel, Military Advanced Education & Transition’s editor.
This year, institutions were evaluated on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, general support, on-campus support and online support services.
“It’s an honor to provide a supportive and welcoming environment in which veterans can learn and grow at Montgomery College,” said Joanna Starling, manager of veterans programs for Montgomery College. “And we are truly grateful for this recognition from MAE&T.”
The 2016 Guide is in the December issue of Military Advanced Education &Transition, and in a searchable database online (www.mae-kmi.com). Visitors to the site will have access to all the survey questions and answers provided by the schools, as well as explanations about critical issues like activation, deployment and withdrawal policies and scholarship and financial aid information.
