Victory Media has named Northeast State to the coveted Military Friendly Schools ® list. The 2014 Military Friendly Schools® list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.
“It is an honor to be included in this select group of colleges and universities for the 5th consecutive year,” said Pat Chandler, coordinator of Veterans Affairs at the College. “Northeast State strives to offer the best possible services to those who have already given so much. We want these students to be successful.”
The Military Friendly Schools® web site, www.militaryfriendlyschools.com, features the list as well as interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences. The 1,868 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience. These schools have programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility and other services to those who served.
“Inclusion on the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools® shows Northeast State’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, vice president at Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran.
Now in its fifth year, the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools ® was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 10,000 schools nationwide approved for Veterans’ Administration tuition funding.
