Northcentral University (NCU), a global online graduate school, announced today that it has been designated a 2015 Military Friendly® School by Victory Media, the leader in successfully connecting the military and civilian worlds.
Now in its sixth year, the Military Friendly® Schools designation and list by Victory Media is the premier, trusted resource for post-military success. Military Friendly® provides service members transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education, and career opportunities.
The Military Friendly® Schools designation is awarded to the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students, and to dedicate resources to ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation. The methodology used for making the Military Friendly® Schools list has changed the student veteran landscape to one much more transparent, and has played a significant role over the past six years in capturing and advancing best practices to support military students across the country.
“Northcentral University is honored to once again be named a Military Friendly School by Victory Media,” said Dr. Scott Burrus, provost and chief academic officer. “At NCU we are committed to helping our military students achieve academically and become valuable contributors within their communities and professions.”
