Berkeley Today Stories
Berkeley is also committed to military families
In addition to being recognized as a Military Friendly School, Berkeley College has also been designated as a Top 10 Military Spouse Friendly School in the nation. More than 1,500 schools were evaluated in the 2017 survey, putting Berkeley in distinguished company.
“The spouses of servicemembers share the burdens and sacrifices involved in protecting our nation. Berkeley is equally committed to these important men and women by providing them with an outstanding education, as well as critical support services and resources,” says Dr. Richard Robitaille of the Berkeley College Office of Military and Veterans Affairs.
Ratings are determined through the evaluation of both public data about institutions and proprietary data gathered through the Military Friendly® Schools survey. Schools are evaluated in the following categories: Academic Policies & Compliance, Admissions & Orientation, Culture & Commitment, Financial Aid & Loan Repayment, Graduation & Career Outcomes, and Military Student Support & Retention.
