(ORANGE, CA – September 17, 2012) Argosy University is pleased to announce that the university system has received the honor and was selected as a Military Friendly school by G.I. Jobs Magazine. The university now appears on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools. The 2013 list includes schools that represent the top tier of U.S. colleges, universities and trade schools doing the most to educate America’s veterans.
“Argosy University holds the utmost respect for the men and women who have served and who continue to serve our nation,” says Dr. Craig Swenson, Chancellor of Argosy University and a member of the U.S. Army Educational Advisory Committee. “We are proud to be honored by GI Jobs Magazine for our commitment to service members and ensuring they receive a quality education that serves them during and after their service to our country.”
The list was compiled through exhaustive research starting last April during which G.I. Jobs polled more than 12,000 schools nationwide. Methodology, criteria and weighting for the list were developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board (AAB) consisting of educators from Carnegie Mellon University, Duquesne University, Colorado State University, Dallas County Community College, Old Dominion University, Cleveland State University, Lincoln Technical Institute and Embry Riddle; as well as Keith Wilson, Veteran Administration’s Director of Education Services; Michele Spires, American Council on Education’s Assistant Director of Military Programs; Janet Swandol, Associate Director for College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and Derek Blumke, President of Student Veterans of America. A full list of board members can be found at http://militaryfriendlyschools.com/Article/advisory-board/.
Criteria for making the Military Friendly Schools list included efforts to recruit and retain military and veteran students, results in recruiting military and veteran students, and academic accreditations. Schools on the list also offer additional benefits to student veterans including on-campus veteran programs, credit for service, military spouse programs and more.
