CUA Named to Military Friendly Schools List
The Catholic University of America has been named to the Military Friendly Schools list by Victory Media, a media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life.
The list honors the top 20 percent of 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.
This is the second consecutive year Catholic University has been named to the list.
The list of all schools can be found at militaryfriendlyschools.com. The 1,868 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 programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility, and other services for those who have served in the armed forces.
Now in its fifth year, the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through research and a data-driven survey of more than 10,000 schools nationwide approved for Department of Veterans Affairs tuition funding. A detailed list of 2014 Military Friendly Schools will be highlighted in the annual Guide to Military Friendly Schools, distributed in print and digital format to active and former military personnel in early October.
