LYNCHBURG, VA— Central Virginia Community College (CVCC) has earned the 2020-2021 designation as an official Military Friendly School. 

Institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 1,000 schools participated in the 2020-2021 survey with 695 earning the designation.

The 2020-­2021 Military Friendly Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at

The methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by the marketing firm Viqtory with input from the Military Friendly Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. 

Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with an assessment of CVCC's ability to meet thresholds for Student Retention, Graduation, Job Placement, Loan Repayment, Persistence (Degree Advancement or Transfer) and Loan Default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
