POTSDAM -- Clarkson University has been named to the 2014 Military Friendly Schools List.
Victory Media, a media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named Clarkson University to the list. The list is available at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com.
The list honors the 20 percent of schools in the country doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses and ensure their success on campus.
“Inclusion on the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Clarkson University's commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, vice president at Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran. “The need for education is growing and our mission is to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools.”
The schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience. These schools have programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility, and other services for those who served.
Clarkson University provides full tuition benefits to qualifying post-9-11 active duty service members, veterans, and eligible dependents of military personnel under the federal government’s Yellow Ribbon Program.
With a long history of military preparation on its campus, Clarkson's Army and Air Force ROTC units are often recognized in Washington Monthly magazine's annual college guide for having the second highest concentration of ROTC military service in the nation.
Now in its fifth year, the 2014 list was compiled through research and a survey of more than 10,000 schools nationwide approved for VA tuition funding.
A full story and detailed list of 2014 Military Friendly Schools will be highlighted in the annual Guide to Military Friendly Schools, distributed in print and digital format to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel in early October.
