CBC Earns Military Friendly School Award for 13 Consecutive Years

Central Baptist College has once again earned the Military Friendly School designation for the 2022-2023 year. Institutions earning the Military FriendlySchool designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 1,800 schools participated in the 2022-2023 survey with 665 earning the designation. The 2022-2023 Military Friendly Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at

Methodology, criteria and weightings were determined by Viqtory with input from the Military Friendly Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for Student Retention, Graduation, Job Placement, Loan Repayment, Persistence (Degree Advancement or Transfer) and Loan Default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.

CBC President Terry Kimbrow said, “It is an honor to earn the Military FriendlySchool designation for the 13th year in a row. CBC has a long tradition of working with students who serve or have served in the military. We are devoted to helping veteran students, and their families, realize their goal of obtaining their college degree. We will continue to do whatever it takes to honor their service to our country.”

Military Friendly National Director of Military Partnerships, Kayla Lopez stated, “Military Friendly is committed to transparency and providing consistent data-driven standards in our process. This creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages institutions to consistently evolve and support their programs. Award-level schools have gone beyond that standard, showing true commitment and dedication in their efforts. The Military Friendly benchmark promotes positive educational outcomes and support services that better the educational landscape and provide opportunity for the Military Community.”
