Casper College has been named to the 2019-20 Military Friendly Schools list as a Silver Award recipient. The list, compiled by Military Friendly, honors those colleges, universities, and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

According to Military Friendly, schools that receive the Silver Award designation “ … meet the requirements and score within 20% of the 10th ranking school in their category. Only a select group of institutions achieve this honor.” Nicholas Whipps, veteran and international student coordinator, noted that being a Military Friendly Silver member “means that Casper College provides ample opportunity and support for veterans.” Casper College is also the only Military Friendly designated school in the state of Wyoming for 2019-2020.

The 2019-20 Military Friendly Schools list was compiled using public data sources for more than 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans, and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly Schools survey from participating institutions.
