Jefferson Community College (JCC) has been named to the 2022 Military Times Best for Vets Colleges listing for the 6th time since 2017. JCC is one of 27 colleges recognized in New York State and one of 310 schools that made the list.
For more than a decade, 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. The most significant weighing metrics determining the relative ranking of schools in the 2022 survey was student success (completion, retention, persistence, GPA) followed closely by the range of military-specific resources and the level of financial assistance offered. Admissions and registration policies, human resources and assorted miscellaneous considerations also factor into the scoring rubric. Each school’s participation is voluntary.
