UW-Superior again named Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs magazine

Posted on Sep 19, 2011

UW-Superior has been named a Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs magazine for the second consecutive year in recognition of the university's efforts to assist military veterans and their family members in completing a college education.

According to G.I. Jobs, the ranking places UW-Superior in the top 15 percent of all colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide in services offered to veterans.

"We're pleased and proud to again be recognized among the top schools in the country for working with veterans," said UW-Superior Admissions Director Tonya Roth. "We want to help them further their education, and we value the knowledge and experience they bring to our campus community."

G.I. Jobs is a private organization that surveys 7,000 schools nationwide about the services they provide to veterans and makes that information available through its magazine and website. Methodology for compiling the research was developed with assistance of an advisory board made up of educators from across the country.

To be named a Military Friendly School, a university is evaluated on such areas as flexibility in class scheduling and requirements, transferring academic credits, providing support for veterans, and academic accreditation. For more information go to www.militaryfriendlyschools.com.

UW-Superior currently has enrolled about 167 military veterans and family members of veterans.

UW-Superior provides a veterans benefits coordinator to help veterans understand their government education benefits and to arrange payment for their tuition and fees. The university also tries to maximize the number of military training and education credits that veterans can transfer to UW-Superior to apply toward their university degrees.

UW-Superior engages students for lifelong learning and rewarding careers through more than 26 undergraduate and graduate programs offered on campus along with degrees offered through distance learning. The university is a member of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges and plays a central role in the University of Wisconsin System's Growth Agenda for Wisconsin.
