Aims Community College a Military Friendly School

Submitted on: 09-17-2012

Aims Community College again has been designated as a Military Friendly School because of the programs and resources it offers to military personnel making the transition to civilian life.

The 2013 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

“We truly value those brave men and women who are serving and have served our country,” said Stu Thomas, registrar at Aims Community College. “It is an honor for Aims to be recognized for our efforts to help with the transition from military life to college.”

The colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility, and other services to those who served. The list was compiled through extensive research of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide.

The Military Friendly Schools media and website, found at, feature the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences.  A full story and detailed list of 2013 Military Friendly Schools will be highlighted in the annual G.I. Jobs Guide to Military Friendly Schools, distributed in print and digital format to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel in early October.
