UC Receives Silver Military Friendly Designation


Charleston, WV> – The University of Charleston has been named a 2019 Military Friendly Silver Designated School by Victory Media.  The list honors the top colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus. 

The Silver designation is awarded to schools who meet a specific set of requirements and score within 20% of the 10th ranking school in their category. Only a select group of institutions achieve this honor.

According to the www.militaryfriendlyschools.com website, “Military Friendly is the standard that measures an organization’s commitment, effort and success in creating sustainable and meaningful benefit for the military community. Military Friendly Schools survey is the longest-running most comprehensive review of college and university investments in serving military and veteran students.”

The Military Friendly Schools® media and website feature the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences. The 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 world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility and other services to those who served.

The 2019 list was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 10,000 schools nationwide approved for VA tuition funding. It will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs Magazine, and can also be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.
