Prescott Valley, AZ (PRWEB) September 22, 2011
Northcentral University, a global leader in 100% online higher education has been awarded the designation of Military Friendly School for the third straight year by G.I. Jobs, the premier magazine for military personnel transitioning into civilian life. The 2012 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members and veterans as students.
In its effort to help student veterans find the right school, G.I. Jobs incorporated a survey of student veterans for the first time. This feedback provides prospective military students with insight into the student veteran experience at a particular institution based on peer reviews from current students. Michael Dakduk, Executive Director for the Student Veterans of America agrees. “The Military Friendly Schools list is the go-to resource for prospective student veterans searching for schools that provide the right overall experience. Nothing is more compelling than actual feedback from current student veterans.”
Dr. Clinton Gardner, President of Northcentral University, stated “We, too, believe that nothing is more compelling than direct feedback from our students. We will continue to use that feedback to innovate and improve our online degree programs to help our military service men and women advance their career while they serve, and provide them with career options after military life.” Click here for more information about online degree opportunities for military service members, veterans and their families.
