Friday, February 8th, 2019

Albany Technical College has been awarded a 2019 Military Friendly Silver Designation by VIQTORY, a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business that connects the military community to civilian employment, educational and entrepreneurial opportunities through its G.I. Jobs, Military Spouse, and Military Friendly brands. The 2019-2020 List of “Better for Veterans” institutions was identified across the country and all participating schools were contacted in January informing them of their ranking.

“This reinforces our commitment to the military families offering Albany Technical College as a viable option for education, financial aid, employment assistance and unique opportunities that exist for our military communities,” stated Dr. Anthony Parker, President at Albany Technical College.

Continuing its mission to provide veterans and their spouses with the finest choices for post-secondary
education, VIQTORY has released the 2019-2020 Military Friendly Schools list. Now in its 10th year, the
Military Friendly Schools list has come to set the standard for higher education institutions to provide the best opportunities for veterans and their spouses. This prestigious list provides a comprehensive guide for veterans and their families using data sources from federal agencies and proprietary survey information from participating organizations.

Institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey completed by the school. This year 766 schools earned this prestigious designation.
