Aiken Technical College Named Military Friendly® School for 2022-2023 Year

Aiken Technical College (ATC) has earned the 2022-2023 Military Friendly® School designation from Viqtory’s Military Friendly® brand. This is the 11th consecutive year the College has received the designation.

The College also received the Military Friendly® School silver level award for exceeding standards.

Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Over 1,800 schools participated in the 2022-2023 survey with 665 earning special awards for going above the standard.

ATC offers student veterans access to unique scholarships and sponsorships, an on-campus Veterans Affairs and financial aid specialist, and on- and off-campus development and engagement activities through the Student Veterans Association.

The 2022-2023 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in G.I. Jobs magazine’s May and October issues and can be found at

Viqtory determined methodology, criteria, and weightings with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council made up of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community.

Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey response set and government/agency public data sources within a logic-based scoring assessment. Taken into consideration was 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.
