SCF, Manatee-Sarasota Receives 2017 Military Friendly Designation

(Bradenton, Fla., Dec. 27, 2016) —  Victory Media has named State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) a 2017 Military Friendly School for the seventh consecutive year. SCF, which serves about 300 veterans and their dependents, received the designation based on personal opinion data from veteran students, data from federal agencies and information from SCF.

The final designation was determined by combining SCF’s survey scores with an assessment of its ability to meet minimum thresholds in six areas: student veteran retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence and loan default rates. Victory Media has surveyed thousands of institutions and assembled lists that capture best practices in recruitment and retention of military employees, students and franchisees. The program has been instrumental in the development of corporate and college military recruiting programs.

SCF exceeded the benchmark standards as a military friendly school in every category. For more information visit To talk to a veteran services advisor, call 941-752-5505 in Bradenton or 941-408-1446 in Venice.
