UND Again Named ‘Top Military-Friendly School’

rotc-student_insideThe University of North Dakota has once again been named a Top Military-Friendly University by Military Advanced Education & Transition (MAE&T) and will be listed in the 2016 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges and Universities, which serves as a research tool for service members, education services officers and transition officers.

Military-friendly universities show “strong support of the student veteran and service member community” by “implementing the best practices asserted by various higher education groups and reinforced by veteran groups,” according to KMI Media Group, Inc., which serves the military and defense industry.

To compile the 2016 guide, MAE&T evaluated schools on flexibility of online learning options, extent of transfer credits accepted by degree level, on-campus Reserve Officer Training Corps programs, Service member Opportunity Colleges participation, on-campus active duty/veteran assistance, the support provided to the families of service members, faculty trained in veteran reintegration issues, presence on military installations, and  full-time counselors trained in veteran-specific mental health concerns, in addition to others. The guide displays each school with gauges measuring their military culture, financial assistance, flexibility, general support, online support and on-campus support.

More information about resources UND offers to active service members and veterans is available through the Veteran & Military Students page on UND’s website.
