Irving, Texas. November 12, 2018

North Lake College (NLC) has been designated for the fifth consecutive year by Military Times as a Best for Vets college. NLC remains the only Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) institution to ever be recognized.

The annual Military Times survey is the most comprehensive school-by-school assessment of veteran and military student services and rates of academic achievement. Hundreds of colleges across the country take part in the ranking process. 

“Accolades are nice, but being recognized for assisting veterans transition from military service to academia is extremely important,” said Skip Ragler, Veterans Affairs Coordinator. “I am proud of our efforts.” 

The NLC Veterans Affairs Office offers individual academic advisement, registration, degree planning, course certification for benefits, and referrals for campus and community resources.
