Miami named a 2017 Military Friendly School

Military Friendly logoMiami University has been named a Military Friendly® School for 2017. Miami has appeared on this list for each of the eight years it has been produced.

Released by Victory Media, this year’s list recognizes the top colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students.

The list of 1,237 Military Friendly® Schools highlights those institutions that exhibit leading practices to support military students. An annual, data-driven Military Friendly® Schools survey assessment is offered at no cost to more than 8,800 institutions nationwide.

A significant change for 2017 was the consideration of three data sources in the scoring methodology: publicly available data from federal agencies; personal opinion data from veteran employees or students; and proprietary Military Friendly® survey data from participating organizations.

Final results were determined by combining an organization’s survey scores with an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet minimum thresholds in six areas critical to success: student veteran retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence and loan default rates.
