Central Baptist College Awarded Military Friendly® Schools


Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named Central Baptist College to the coveted Military Friendly® Schools list. The 2015 Military Friendly® Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service member, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

More than 1,500 colleges, universities and trade schools were designated with this honor because they 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.

CBC President Terry Kimbrow said, “It is an honor to be included on the Military Friendly Schools list for the sixth year in a row.  We have a strong commitment to our men and women in the military and will continue to do whatever it takes to honor their service to our country.”

CBC offers an Associate of Science degree in Military Technologies with locations in Conway and in North Little Rock at Camp Robinson. To admitted students, CBC also offers the following benefits to our service men and women: Full time Veteran advisers on staff, process enrollment certifications for  VA GI Bill Education, Federal Tuition Assistance, tuition discounts for qualifying soldiers, free evaluations of AARTS/SMARTS military transcript, and participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program.

In addition to the Military Technologies Associate’s degree, CBC offers eight other degree programs in the Professional Adult College Education program and three online degrees.  This program offers the working adult the opportunity to work full time and obtain their college degree.

Currently, at CBC, 16% of the traditional and PACE/Online student population are military.

Central Baptist College is a four-year, private, liberal arts college founded in 1952 by the Baptist Missionary Association of Arkansas. For information about CBC, go to www.cbc.edu or call 501-329-6873
