A media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life has named Oklahoma City University to the coveted Military Friendly Schools list.
The 2013 Military Friendly Schools list by Victory Media honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.
“Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Oklahoma City University’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, director for G.I. Jobs and vice president at Victory Media.
“As interest in education grows we’re thrilled to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools.”
Chuck Flint, OCU’s coordinator of military admissions and affairs, said the designation is evidence of the university’s goal of helping students obtain a first-class education.
“Those who serve our country with honor deserve a chance at the best educational opportunities available,” Flint said. “We’re happy to help them with their educational needs, and proud that a media voice of these students has recognized our commitment.”
Now in its fourth year, the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide. The survey tabulation process, methodology and weightings that comprise the 2013 list were independently verified by Ernst and Young LLP.
