Military Friendly distinction awarded to Northwest Florida State College
February 22, 2021
Northwest Florida State College was recently named a 2021-2022 Military Friendly School with Bronze Distinction in the Small Public category by MilitaryFriendly.com.
Each year, schools completing the survey are weighted according to six categories: military student support and retention, graduation and career outcomes, financial aid and loan repayment, culture and commitment, admissions and orientation, and academic policies and compliance.
Final survey results and ratings are determined by combining an institution’s survey scores with the institution’s ability to meet minimum thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment and loan default rates for students and especially for student veterans. The benchmark is set by the score of the leading institution.
The bronze distinction is awarded to schools who scored within 30 percent of the 10th best school in the category. These institutions have exceptional military and veteran programs.
“Northwest Florida State College strives to be the first choice in higher education for our region’s veterans,” said Dr. Devin Stephenson, NWFSC President. “We are proud to support our nations’ finest by providing the best educational experience possible.”
