(WEST TEXAS) – Texas State Technical College has been designated a Top School in Military Advanced Education & Transition’s (MAE&T) 2016 Guide to Colleges & Universities. The guide, which measures the best practices in military and veteran education, was released late this month.
The guide evaluates more than 600 institutions including private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year and two-year colleges. From community colleges to state universities, online universities and nationally known centers of higher learning, MAE&T’s 2016 Guide to Colleges & Universities arms students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to our men and women in uniform.
This year, institutions were evaluated on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, general support, on-campus support and online support services.
“Our goal is to be a dynamic resource for active service members and those who have moved from the military to their civilian careers, helping them find the school that best fits their plans for the future,” said Kelly Fodel, Military Advanced Education & Transition’s editor.
Earlier this year, EMA Electromechanics donated $75,000 to TSTC to found an account called the Sweetwater Veteran’s Funds for College Education. Funds will go towards helping veterans complete their technical training at the college’s West Texas campuses in Abilene, Breckenridge, Brownwood and Sweetwater. TSTC served 88 veterans in the Fall 2015 semester.
