Madison College named a top-ranked Military FriendlyⓇ school


For the second straight year, Madison College is ranked third nationally in the Military FriendlyⓇ ratings of large community colleges. That's the highest ranking of any college in Wisconsin.

“It's an honor to receive recognition, but the greatest reward is our students' academic success," said Madison College Veteran Resource Services Coordinator Allan Locia. "Being a top-rated college for the second straight year is confirmation that our team is on the right path."                                                             

Military Friendly® is the standard that measures an organization’s commitment, effort and success in creating sustainable and meaningful benefit for the military community. It's the longest-running and most comprehensive review of college and university investments in serving military and veteran students. 

Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 1,200 schools participated in the 2021-2022 survey with around 750 schools earning the designation. Of those, only 162 were selected for the “Gold” award status for their leading practices, outcomes and effective programs.
