Military Friendly School 2019-2020 Awards ECPI University with Designation
Marks 9th Straight Year University Honored with Designation
For the ninth straight year, ECPI University has been designated a Military Friendly® School by VIQTORY Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs®, STEM JobsSM and Military Spouse. The Military Friendly® Schools designation provides service members and their families with transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities.
Schools were evaluated based on metrics such as retention, graduation, employment, loan default, and transfer rates. Other criteria includes the school’s standing with accrediting bodies and the VA, as well as participation in federal programs such as
- Yellow Ribbon
- 8 Keys to Vet Success
- Veteran Success on Campus (VSOC)
- VA’s Principles of Excellence.
What’s more, data is independently tested by EY (Ernst & Young) based upon methodology established by VIQTORY Media with guidance from an independent Advisory Board of higher education and recruiting professionals. The Military Friendly® Schools designation is awarded to institutions of higher learning that are both embracing military students and dedicating resources to ensure their success both in the classroom and after graduation.
“Being a Military Friendly School means we passed the inspection and shows that ECPI University possesses the programs, policies and standards that military and veteran students want to prepare themselves for future military service or a career in the civilian world,” says ECPI University Executive Director of Military Education Bill Brown. “So many of our campuses are located near military communities and our faculty and staff have a true respect and admiration for what all of our military, veterans, and dependents have experienced and know that it will help translate into success in the classroom.”
“Survey editors at Military Friendly examine a lot of information to figure out who the Military Friendly schools are and the great thing is these are the same things ECPI University has considered as we develop our programs and the support we provide to our military, veterans and dependents on a daily basis.”
Taking care of military-connected students is something that comes natural to everyone at ECPI University. With many of its campuses located near large military bases and close to 30 percent of its students being military connected, ECPI will always make sure it is focused on taking care of military-connected students and will always work to be the best school in terms of caring for them.
“Being a military friendly school is a team effort and one that involves all of the ECPI faculty and staff,” says Brown. “ECPI wants to be the best University at taking care of our military- connected students and I think it shows every day from the way we help get them started as new students, to our programs to support them while they are students and then the connections we have in the workforce community to help them embark on their civilian careers.”
In addition to being a Military Friendly® School, ECPI University is recognized yearly as Best for Vets by Military Times and a Top School by Military Advanced Education. What’s more, it is proud to be a longtime participating college in the Yellow Ribbon program.
