Now in its fourth year, the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide. Each year, schools taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an academic advisory board consisting of educators from schools across the country.
The 1,739 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list are recognized for exhibiting leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience. These schools have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility, and other services to those who served.
The full list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences are available on the Military Friendly Schools website.
