Springfield News-Sun - 3/2/2021

Mar. 2—Clark State College has been named as one of the Nation's Top Military Friendly Schools for the third consecutive year, according to a release from the school.

"For the third year in a row, Clark State is a Top Ten Military Friendly School and once again, is ranked number 4. In addition, we are the only Ohio school to receive the top-ten designation in the small community college category," said registrar Diana Seaman.

The college serves United States military veteran students, active military students, National Guard and Reserve students, dependents and military spouses. Students have also been inducted into the SALUTE National Honor Society, the only one that recognizes and honors the service and achievements of student veterans.

"Supporting our veteran and military student populations continues to be a top priority for Clark State," Seaman said.

Clark State has received other military awards, included Top School in the 2018 Military Advanced Education & Transition Guide to Colleges & Universities, designation as a Purple Heart Campus in 2015 and was approved as the first community college in Ohio by the Community College of the Air Force as a General Education Mobile partner.

The college offers a 50% tuition discount to active-duty military students and their spouses. To be eligible, potential students must present active orders or military ID to the cashier's office.

The list of ratings is determined by combining the college's survey scores and the ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence and loan default rates, the release stated. It is identified by VIQTORY, a service-disabled, veteran-owned business that connects the military community to civilian employment, educational and entrepreneurial opportunities.
