ECPI University has been designated as a military friendly school by G.I. Jobs, according to an announcement made recently by the magazine.
The magazine targeted to military personnel transitioning into civilian life, included ECPI University in its 2012 Military Friendly Schools list. The ranking honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members and veterans as students.
“Those serving our country have unique needs and ECPI University has proudly been serving them for 45 years,” said Bob Larned, Executive Director of Military Education at ECPI University. “We do everything possible to assist military students in getting their degree, including our military distance learning partnerships with every branch of the military and our unique partnership with the Wounded Warrior Program to provide on base training with our Information Assurance Training program.”
The 1,518 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list prioritize the recruitment of students with military experience. According to the magazine, schools are making the grade by offering scholarships and discounts, veterans’ clubs, full-time staff, military credit and other services to those who served. The 2012 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data driven survey of more than 8,000 schools nationwide. Methodology, criteria and weighting for the list were developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board consisting of educators from schools across the country.
