SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (PRWEB) March 03, 2021
American International College (AIC) announced it has earned the 2021-2022 Military Friendly ® School designation.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly ® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 1,200 schools participated in the 2021-2022 survey with 747 earning the designation.
The 2021- 2022 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at http://www.militaryfriendly.com.
Methodology and criteria were determined by VIQTORY with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey response set and government/agency public data sources within a logic based scoring assessment. The institution’s ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence (degree advancement or transfer) and loan default rates for all students are measured.
“American International College is proud to be recognized as an institution that assists men and women who serve our country,” says AIC President Vince Maniaci. “The College appreciates the value of the many educational and leadership experiences that occur in the Armed Forces, and the excellent foundation that military service provides. In turn, we give transfer credits for students’ time in the U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard, helping active duty service members and veterans get a head start on earning their degrees.”
“Military Friendly ® is committed to transparency and providing consistent data driven standards in our designation process. This creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages colleges to consistently evolve and invest in their programs. Schools who achieve designation show true commitment and dedication in their efforts,” according to Kayla Lopez, national director of Military Partnerships for Military Friendly ®. “Our standards assist schools by providing a benchmark that promotes positive educational outcomes, resources, and support services that better the educational landscape and provide opportunity for the Military Community.”
