More than 500 colleges took part in this year’s detailed survey.
“We are thrilled that Montgomery College and our commitment to serving student veterans and service members has once again been recognized by Military Times on their “Best for Vets” list,” said Joanna Starling, coordinator of Montgomery College’s Combat to College program. “We look forward to continuing to provide innovative programming to help student veterans succeed.”
Montgomery College serves veterans through the college’s Combat to College program. Combat to College is a comprehensive program to welcome home and provide academic and social opportunities and appropriate support services for veterans, and active and reserve service members.
Montgomery College is also the only school in the nation to host a dedicated study center for women veterans.
