Military Friendly Awards College a Silver Ranking


Military Friendly silver seal

Moreno Valley College received a Silver standing from Military Friendly in its annual Military Friendly® School designation report for 2021-22. Institutions were evaluated through public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Over 1,200 schools participated in the survey with around 750 schools earning a designation after reviewing institutions' practices, outcomes and effective programs.

The Military Friendly ratings program began in 2003 as an advocacy vehicle to encourage civilian organizations to invest in programs to recruit, retain and advance Veterans as employees, entrepreneurs and students.

"It is always great to be recognized as a Military Friendly institution," Lizette Tenorio, Veteran services specialist, said. "At Moreno Valley College Veterans Resource Center, we strive to provide Veterans and military affiliated students with services and activities that will assist them in achieving their academic goals. The College and Veterans Resource Center pride themselves on providing the tools and support needed for Veterans to successfully transition from military to college."

The College is located in a county where over 125,876 Veterans reside of which 9,993 live in the cities of Moreno Valley and Perris which the College serves.

Colleges are scored in a number of areas but what matters most is helping Veterans make the transition from the military to school and, ultimately, satisfying careers in the civilian world. Rankings are determined by combining an institution's survey score with the assessment of the institution's ability to meet minimum thresholds for student retention, graduation and job placement for all students and specifically for student Veterans based on public data.

College responses covered six areas critical in helping Veterans thrive on campus and later in the workplace:

  • Academic Policies and Compliance
  • Admissions and Orientation
  • Culture and Commitment
  • Financial Aid and Loan Repayment
  • Graduation and Career Outcomes
  • Military Student Support and Retention
