Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named Central Baptist College to the coveted Military Friendly Schools list, according to a news release Friday.

"We have a strong commitment to our men and women in the military and will continue to do whatever it takes to honor their service to our country," CBC President Terry Kimbrow said. It is a distinct privilege to be included on this list."

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.

"Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Central Baptist College’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students," said Sean Collins, director for G.I. Jobs and vice president at Victory Media. "As interest in education grows we’re thrilled to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools."

The 1,739 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience. These schools have programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility and other services to those who served, according to the release.

CBC offers an Associate of Science degree in Military Technologies with locations in Conway and in North Little Rock at Camp Robinson. To admitted students, CBC also offers the following benefits for military personnel: Full-time Veteran advisers on staff, process enrollment certifications for VA GI Bill Education, Federal Tuition Assistance, tuition discounts for qualifying soldiers, free evaluations of the Army-American Council on Education Registry or the Sailor-Marine American Council on Education Registry transcript systems and participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program.
