Clackamas Community College Named One of the Best in Nation for Veterans

Wednesday, November 11, 2015

 

Clackamas Community College was named as one of the best colleges in the nation for veterans by the Military Times in its Best for Vets: Colleges 2016 rankings.

Colleges are ranked in one of three categories: four-year, online and nontraditional and two-year. CCC ranked first in the West and fourth in the country in the two year category. 

The Military Times’ annual Best for Vets: Colleges survey asks colleges and universities to document services special rules accommodations and financial incentives offered to students with military ties. More than 600 colleges and universities participated in this year’s survey

"It's been amazing to witness how colleges all across higher education have embraced service members and their families," said Amanda Miller, editor of Military Times' Best for Vets rankings and special editions. "We award the Best for Vets designation to the very best - the colleges that really are setting the example." 

CCC offers veterans a wide range of services, including the Veterans Education and Training Center, located on the Oregon City Campus. The Center is staffed with full-time veteran advocates and co-located with the Army Strong Community Center in the West. 

CCC also provides veterans with counseling, resources, advising and disability services, emergency need-based grants, a textbook exchange, military transcript and training evaluation for college credit, a Student Veterans Club and the Military Families Scholarship Endowment.

"Our veterans are an integral part of our student body here at Clackamas Community College," CCC President Joanne Truesdell said. "We have made outreach and service a college commitment in support of our military families and veterans."
