Veterans Day Ceremony

The University of Wisconsin-Platteville has been named a 2023-24 Military Friendly School. The university has participated in the Military Friendly survey for the past four years, each year being granted the designation of Military Friendly School.

“We are excited to receive the Military Friendly Silver Designation for the second year in a row,” said Greg Tremelling, coordinator for the Wright Center for Non-Traditional and Veteran Students at UW-Platteville. “This designation illustrates our commitment to the military-connected students at UW-Platteville, and our dedication to continually increasing resources and services that assist them in achieving their goals.”

By earning this designation, UW-Platteville has been identified as an ideal fit for potential military veterans and students. This rating is based on six categories, including academic policies and compliance, admissions and orientation, culture and commitment, financial aid and assistance, graduation and career, and military student support and retention.

“We serve approximately 282 military-connected students at UW-Platteville, and we are proud of the campus efforts to make our students feel at home while supporting the service of our veterans and service members,” said Tremelling.

According to the Military Friendly® website, institutions earning the Military Friendly® Schools Award were evaluated using public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Over 1,800 schools participated in the 2023-24 survey; 530 schools earned Gold, Silver and Bronze awards.
