QUINCY — Quincy College has again been recognized for its programs that cater to military members and their families.

For the third straight year, Victory Media has named Quincy College to its list of military-friendly schools. The media group, which focuses on issues related to military personnel returning to civilian life, honors colleges, universities and trade schools for welcoming American military members and their families.

Quincy College, one of 1,868 colleges on this year’s list, offers a veterans discount program, allowing veterans to enroll in either liberal arts or professional program classes at reduced rates. Because the discount program isn’t funded by the government, veterans at Quincy College are still eligible for education benefits through the VA.

Advisers at the college also review transcripts and exam scores to help service members transfer credits. It’s difficult for some military personnel to get degrees because they relocate frequently.

Quincy College, founded in 1958, is a two-year school serving about 4,000 students at its Quincy and Plymouth campuses.
