Clarkson University again gets 'military-friendly school' nod

POTSDAM -- Clarkson University has been listed as a military-friendly school in the 2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities by Military Advanced Education (MAE), a KMI Media Group publication.

Clarkson 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.

Clarkson's Army and Air Force ROTC units are consistently recognized in Washington Monthly magazine's annual college guide for having the second highest concentration of ROTC military service in the nation.

Students in these programs are the recipients of awards and recognition for their scholastic work as well as success in field training.

The guide is available in the December issue and at www.kmimediagroup.com/military-advanced-education/5330-2014-guide-to-mil... .

The guide is based on the results of a questionnaire of military-friendly policies at nearly 500 institutions including private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year, and two-year colleges.

This year institutes were also evaluated on their military culture, financial aid for veterans, flexibility, on-campus support, and online support services.

“Our staff used strict criteria to evaluate the submissions of the respondents, and we had a record number of schools participating this year. We believe the guide serves as an invaluable tool for both education services officers and transition officers when advising service members about their educational opportunities,” said Kelly Fodel, MAE’s editor.
