Recognized for providing support to veterans and their families.
For the second consecutive year, Felician College has been named by G.I. Jobs magazine as a Military Friendly School for its commitment to providing a support environment for armed forces veterans and their families.
Felician’s inclusion on the list, which is the result of a survey of more than 12,000 schools, ranks it in the top 15 percent of all colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide.
As a military friendly institution, Felician offers dedicated financial benefits and has created uniquely tailored programs to help veterans and their families achieve their academic goals.
Seirra McCants, a four-year United States Navy veteran, is a Felician College student majoring in criminal justice with a minor in business. She serves as a student liaison between the College’s admissions and financial aid offices and incoming students who also have military experience.
“I’m a mother, a wife and a full-time student so I have a hectic schedule, said Ms. McCants, of Union, New Jersey, who served her tour of duty in Japan. “But I am thrilled to be able to help other students with questions or concerns they might have, especially because I have a true understanding of what they’ve been through or what they are going through now.”
Bachelor Degree programs that qualify for military grants include Business, Computer Information Systems (CIS), Criminal Justice, Professional Studies, Healthcare Administration, education and English. CIS and Criminal Justice are also offered as fully online options, and fast-track programs feature evening classes in eight-week sessions that allow students to further their educations while working during the day.
“I’m very proud of our commitment to the military program,” said Dr. Anne Prisco, President of Felician College. “This is a wonderful way for us to show our deep appreciation for the men and women who have bravely served our country.”
