Finger Lakes Community College recognizes the sacrifice of those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. As an institution, FLCC is grateful for the service student veterans provide to our country. It's the College's goal to provide the services veterans need to successfully transition from the military to the classroom.

Experience Military Friendly Campus

FLCC is proud to be a military friendly school, and has been recognized by VIQTORY as Military Friendly® every year since achieving this designation in 2014. By having the Military Friendly designation, veterans are assured that FLCC meets or exceeds expectations as surveyed by current and past attendees. FLCC recognizes the sacrifice of those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. We are grateful for our student Veterans' service to our country, and we are here to provide the support they need to successfully navigate transition to the classroom. We execute those services within three areas: by working with each potential student in securing as much college credit as possible for military services and training; by working with veterans and/or dependents of veterans to secure maximum benefits; and by connecting veterans to other veterans through peer connections and outside agencies for continual support.
