Morris Named a Military Friendly School for 2014
Posted by Jenna Ray on Wednesday, Sep. 18, 2013
For the third consecutive year, the University of Minnesota, Morris has been named a Military Friendly School by Victory Media. The 2014 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools that support American military service members and veterans as students.
Morris was selected for this year’s Military Friendly Schools list based on several criteria, namely, that it considers eligible military and veteran students for scholarships and in-state tuition without residency. The institution does not penalize military students who are called to active service, and it regularly hosts networking events for veterans. It employs a staff advisor to assist veterans with career placement after graduation as well.
Morris also offers a Veterans Resource Office and accepts American Council on Education and Military Evaluations Program credits for military experience. It has been approved by the Veterans Administration.
Schools are selected for the Guide to Military Friendly Schools via a data-driven survey of over 12,000 institutions, administered by Victory Media. The survey weighting, methodology, and resulting schools list are independently certified by Ernst and Young. Military Friendly Schools® are not ranked on the list. Rather, institutions are commended for demonstrating a strong interest in recruiting military students.
As a Military Friendly School®, Morris will receive a listing in the 2014 Guide to Military Friendly Schools®, which is published in late September by Victory Media. Additional information about the Military Friendly Schools list can be found online.
