Since 2017, Jefferson Community College (JCC) has been designated a Best for Vets College by Military Times and this year is no different. JCC is the highest ranked SUNY, and New York State, two-year college in the Northeast.
For 10 years, Military Times has conducted an extensive, editorially independent, objective study evaluating the many factors that help make colleges and universities a good fit for service members, military veterans and their families. More than 300 colleges took part in this year’s detailed survey.
Military Times’ annual Best for Vets survey asked colleges and universities to meticulously document operations involving current and former service members and their families. To create the rankings, Military Times evaluated colleges’ responses based on what veterans told them was important. Categories include university culture, student support, academic policies, academic outcomes/quality, and cost and financial aid.
