What Does it Mean to be a Military Friendly college?
Though the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) approves over 10,000 colleges to accept GI Bill® funds, according to Victory Media, (a private veteran-owned company that sponsored the survey that resulted in the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools®), not all of these schools have earned the designation “military friendly.” In addition to providing tuition assistance to eligible students, Military friendly colleges have characteristics such as military support on campus and academic credit for military service. Also important are veteran graduation rates, post-degree employment rates, and the availability of tuition assistance.
