Military TimesHOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (12/1/17) — Military Times has announced its Military Times Best: Colleges 2018 rankings, formerly known as Best for Vets.

Hopkinsville Community College is ranked 17th in the two-year college list. HCC has been included in the list for eight consecutive years, since the Military Times’ rankings began.
 
“We are honored to again be included in the list of colleges that focus on and serve the military and veteran population,” said HCC Fort Campbell Campus Director Allisha Lee. “HCC continually looks for ways to improve programming that will fit the needs of service members and their families. We’re growing exciting organizations such as our Student Veterans Organization and SALUTE Veterans National Honor Society that support the military student.”
 
HCC is one of only four on-base higher education institutions, and the only community college on Fort Campbell.
 
More than 600 colleges took part in this year’s detailed survey. 

"Of the hundreds of schools that applied, fewer than half received the Military Times Best: Colleges designation this year. Only the best made the cut," said George Altman, the Military Times editor in charge of the rankings. "For the past eight years, we've seen colleges and universities consistently increasing their resources, revising their policies and improving their academic outcomes for military and veteran students. The Military Times Best: Colleges rankings showcase the very best of these efforts."
 
Military Times’ annual Best Colleges survey asks colleges and universities to meticulously document a tremendous array of services, special rules, accommodations and financial incentives offered to students with military ties; and to describe many aspects of veteran culture on a campus. Military Times also factors in data from the Veterans Affairs and Defense departments, as well as three Education Department sources: the IPEDS Data Center, College Scorecard data and the Cohort Default Rate Database.
