Now in its eighth year, the Military Friendly Schools designation provides service members and their families with transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and training opportunities.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from Victory Media’s proprietary survey. More than 1,600 schools participated in the 2017 survey; 1,160 were awarded with the designation.
Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence (degree advancement or transfer), and loan default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
“The 2017 Military Friendly School designation is a recognition of the work we do in creating a welcoming environment that enables military veterans and their family members to achieve their education and training goals utilizing the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill and other federal benefits for which they are eligible,” said Delaware County Community College President Dr. Jerry Parker.
