MFS LogoMilitary Friendly School
For the second year in a row, Capitol was named a Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs magazine, announced by the release of the publication's 2011 list of Military Friendly Schools. The list honors the top colleges, universities and higher education institutions which are doing the most to embrace America's veterans as students. Originating as a radio engineering institute offering courses for Navy personnel in 1927, Capitol College has a long, proud history of educating active and former members of the armed forces. Participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program and Montgomery GI Bill are just two examples of the many ways Capitol is military-friendly.
