For the second year in a row, The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville was recognized as one of G.I. Jobs' "Military Friendly Schools." As a Military Friendly School for 2011, BCF continues to be commended for offering an extensive range of online courses, educational opportunities at multiple distance sites, and online degree programs that meet the needs of men and women in the armed forces who are unable to relocate and attend in a traditional classroom format.

For several years, BCF has participated in the non-traditional distance programs offered through the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES). This partnership through DANTES provides active duty military members and their families access to a high quality and cost effective education while maintaining a strong military readiness and efficiency. Service members are able to use their military tuition assistance or Veteran's benefits to pay for college courses and never leave their current duty station.

"We are very grateful for the service of our military," stated BCF Director of Distance Learning David Coggins, "and we are glad that we can offer them a quality service in return. Many of our service men and women have a chance to begin work on their degree program even before they leave the military or while they continue their time of active duty service, taking advantage of our online and distance sites. This allows us to provide them with the quality of education that they are looking for and will help them further their own ministry and calling. We continue to enhance our programs and offer to our students the educational opportunities necessary to get all that is needed to be effective in ministry. Our military give us their very best and we want to continue to give our students, especially our service personnel, our very best. This recognition lets us know we are on the right track to do that."

Being a Military Friendly School places BCF in the top 15% of all colleges, universities, and trade schools nationwide. For more information on BCF's online courses, contact 800.328.2660 ext. 460.
