Independence Community College is pleased to announce the college has earned a Military Friendly® School designation for the 2023-2024 Academic Year. The college received a silver designation.

"Since the Military Friendly Schools survey is the longest-running, most comprehensive, and most respected review and analysis of colleges and universities serving veteran and military-affiliated students in the country," said Tommy Ellis, Director of Veteran Student Success. "The designation of ICC as a military-friendly school for the 2nd year in a row, 2022-2024, is especially gratifying."

The list of Military Friendly® Schools and Military Friendly® Schools ratings are assessed by evaluating both public data about the institution and proprietary data gathered through the Military Friendly School Survey. Each year, schools taking the survey are held to a higher standard than in previous years via improved methodology, criteria, and weightings developed by an independent research firm and an Advisory Council.

Survey responses are weighted according to the categories: Academic Policies & Compliance, Graduation & Career Outcomes, Culture & Commitment, Military Student Support & Retention, Admissions & Orientation & Financial Aid & Loan Repayment.

The Center of Excellence for Veteran Student Success (CEVSS) 's mission is to support student veterans in achieving their academic, career, and personal goals. Made possible by a Department of Education Fund for the Improvement of Secondary Education (FIPSE) grant, the evolving success center at ICC serves as a focal point for veteran students focusing on four key areas: 1) aiding veterans' transition to campus life, 2) increasing retention, 3) completing a degree 4) and transferring to a four-year university.

With dedicated support staff, the Veteran Student Success Center provides veteran students, currently active, National Guard, Reservists, and military dependents, with information about various campus and community support resources.
