St. Cloud Technical & Community College is a recipient of the gold-level award by Military Friendly in the category of Community College for 2017.

More than 1,200 post-secondary schools were designated as “Military Friendly.” Of those designated, 541 schools have been recognized for excellence in different categories: academic policies and compliance; admissions and orientation; culture and commitment; financial aid and assistance; graduation and career; and military student support and retention.

Using these benchmarks, three primary areas are examined on how well SCTCC engages, educates, and employs its military students.

“This is a great honor to be named a Military Friendly school,” said Tarryl Clark, dean of sciences, technology and math. “We are proud to serve our active duty service members and veterans to help them prepare for their future.”

SCTCC completed a 2017 Military Friendly survey to be considered for the Military Friendly rating. To see a complete list of this year’s award winners, or to learn more about Military Friendly ratings, methodology and how to participate, visit
