2014 Military Friendly School
SNC has been included on the 2014 Military Friendly Schools® list, which designates the 20 percent of American colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students, and to ensure their success on campus.
The institutions on the list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience. These schools have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility and other services to those who served.
At SNC, our emphasis on active learning techniques such as problem-based learning, internships, team-based challenges, and research engage students of varied backgrounds and learning styles.
Active Duty Students
Sierra Nevada College will limit academic residency to twenty-five percent or less of the degree requirement for all degrees for active-duty servicemembers and their adult family members (spouse and college-age children). In addition, there are no “final year” or “final semester” residency requirements for active-duty servicemembers and their family members. Academic residency can be completed at any time while active-duty servicemembers and their family members are enrolled. Reservist and National Guardsmen on active-duty are covered in the same manner.
