UW-Platteville Online Named to Victory Media’s 2017 Military Friendly® Schools List
The University of Wisconsin-Platteville Online, a leader in distance education for over 35 years, has earned the 2017 Military Friendly® School designation by Victory Media. Military Friendly Schools is an annual list that provides service members and their families guidance in selecting the best college, university, or trade school to receive the education and training needed to pursue a civilian career.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from Victory Media’s proprietary survey. Ratings methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Victory Media 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 scores with the assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence and loan default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
“Receiving the Military Friendly® designation is an incredible honor. This recognition recognizes our commitment to providing both our active military and student veterans a quality education no matter where they are, across the country or on the other side of the world,” said Dawn Drake, Executive Director of Alternative Delivery Systems for UW-Platteville.
According to Daniel Nichols, a Navy Reserve veteran and Chief Product Officer at Victory Media, “Our ability to apply a clear, consistent standard to the majority of colleges gives veterans a comprehensive view of which schools are striving to provide the best opportunities and conditions for our nation’s student veterans. Military Friendly® helps military families make the best use of the Post-9/11 GI Bill and other federal benefits while allowing us to further our goal of assisting them in finding success in their chosen career fields.”
