UW-Platteville receives silver military friendly designation


MilitaryFriendly sealThe University of Wisconsin-Platteville has been named a 2022-23 Military Friendly School. The university has participated in the Military Friendly survey for the past three years, each year being granted the designation of Military Friendly School.

“When we received our designation this year, I was excited to see that we had been granted the silver designation as a Military Friendly School, an upgrade from the past two years,” said Greg Tremelling, coordinator for the Wright Center for Non-Traditional and Veteran Students at UW-Platteville. “This silver designation illustrates the support that we as an institution provide to our military and veteran community, as a whole, and shows our commitment to these students and their success."

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.

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 2022-2023 survey; 665 schools earned awards level designations in Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
