The University of Northwestern Ohio is proud to announce that it has been designated a 2017 Military Friendly® School by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs®, STEM JobsSM , and Military Spouse. First published in 2009, Military Friendly® Schools is the most comprehensive, powerful resource for veterans today. This honor ranks UNOH in the top 15% of all colleges, universities, and trade schools nationwide.   This is the eighth consecutive year that the University of Northwestern Ohio has received this distinction. Each year, the list of Military Friendly® Schools is provided to service members and their families, helping them select the best college, university, or trade school to receive the education and training needed to pursue a civilian career.

Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from Victory Media’s proprietary survey. More than 1,600 schools participated in the 2017 survey; 1,160 were awarded with the designation. Ratings methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Victory Media with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for Student Retention, Graduation, Job Placement, Loan Repayment, Persistence (Degree Advancement or Transfer) and Loan Default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.

The UNOH Military Relations Department started in 2001.  The department provides assistance with the enrollment process to all military, veterans, and spouses, and assists with scheduling, financial aid, academic counseling, and customer service.  About 40% of UNOH military students utilize the university’s online learning options which can be accessed from anywhere in the world.

The University has always been proud to be a strong supporter of all servicemen and women.  Randy Gonzalez, UNOH Director of Enrollment Advising is a retired veteran and works with all branches of the United States Armed Forces assisting them with the enrollment process toward their chosen career path.  According to Dr. Jeffrey A. Jarvis, President of the University of Northwestern Ohio, “Being nationally recognized again as a Military Friendly School is a fantastic honor.  We are proud of our decision in January 2009 to lower tuition below the Federal Tuition Assistance (TA) rate.  We maintain that lowered tuition rate to this day. Higher education is now affordable and available to all the young men and women who serve our country.  All active duty military, Guard and Reserve, Veterans, along with their spouses and dependents, are eligible for the UNOH Military tuition rate and/or the UNOH Military Scholarship.  We want to do everything we can to help servicemen and women better their lives through education.”

According to Daniel Nichols, a Navy Reserve veteran and Chief Product Officer at Victory Media, “Our ability to apply a clear, consistent standard to the majority of colleges gives veterans a comprehensive view of which schools are striving to provide the best opportunities and conditions for our nation’s student veterans. Military Friendly® helps military families make the best use of the Post-9/11 GI Bill and other federal benefits while allowing us to further our goal of assisting them in finding success in their chosen career fields.”

UNOH is a member of SOC Consortium, Military Spouse Career Advancement Account Program, GoArmyEd and AI Portal.  UNOH accepts military transcripts (AARTS, SMART, etc.) and honors credit equivalencies defined by the American Council on Education (ACE) for military course work, experience, and testing programs such as CLEP and DANTES.  UNOH also has an on-campus military support group Operation H.U.M.V.E.E which stands for Helping Understand Men & Women Veterans Entering into Education and a UNOH Chapter of the Student Veterans of America (SVA).

UNOH will be showcased along with other 2017 Military Friendly® Schools in the annual Guide to Military Friendly® Schools, special education issues of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse magazine, and on www.MilitaryFriendly.com
