Colleges are selected for the level of academic, financial and personal support they provide to veterans and active-duty personnel. AACC, which has identified 1,500 students who have served in the military, has received this honor from these organizations for seven consecutive years.
The college continually works to help its active-duty and veteran students succeed. The college has a student success coordinator specifically for military and veteran students. Students also can join the campus veterans student organization and have access to a Veterans Resource Center. AACC partners with military-access programs to offer multiple academic programs that allow them to take traditional in-class courses or online courses accessed from wherever they are stationed. The college also changed its financial aid policy this year to allow active-duty military – regardless of where they live or where their duty station is – to be charged tuition at the in-county rate.
