Central Texas College (CTC) was named to the list of Best Colleges for Veterans based on a survey conducted by the Military Times EDGE Magazine. CTC is now ranked as the fourth “Best for Vets: Colleges 2013” in the category of online and nontraditional schools. Last year, CTC was ranked 15th.The selection was based on the primary criteria of academic accreditation, whether the school has a central veterans’ office and staff knowledge on veterans’ issues.
For the sixth consecutive year, Central Texas College (CTC) was named to the list of military-friendly schools compiled recently by Military Advanced Education magazine. In its 2013 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges and Universities, Military Advanced Education compared more than 300 institutions including private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year and two-year colleges.
What began as a chance encounter a year ago, has led to a full four-year ride to one of the most prestigious universities in the United States. Fort Hood Staff Sergeant David Carrell was looking for veterans’ service assistance on the Central Texas College (CTC) campus when he met Matt Keller, CTC veterans advocate. Keller suggested Carrell apply for the Warrior Scholarship Program, a new week-long education program at Yale University. The result was a four-year scholarship for Carrell to attend Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York.
