For the fifth year, Norwich University has been named one of the most military friendly schools in the United States by Victory Media, a veteran-owned business and publisher of G.I. Jobs and the Guide to Military Friendly Schools®. The 2014 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success.

Norwich University, the nation’s oldest private military college, has a rich legacy of innovative education and for developing leaders in the military. To assist veteran students in maximizing their education, Norwich offers numerous resources for undergraduate and graduate students, such as counseling services, ROTC programs, tuition assistance programs, career placement assistance, networking events, and dedicated faculty and staff that have military experience. Additionally, for Norwich’s online bachelor’s degree completion programs, military students are eligible to receive transfer credits for their military training and education, and a dedicated scholarship is available for active duty students in our online master’s programs.

“We want these men and women to use the experience they have gained in their military careers to be successful with their college education,” said Norwich University President Richard Schneider. “At Norwich we help prepare them for the second part of their lives, where they will become the leaders that America needs for tomorrow.”

The 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 10,000 schools nationwide approved for VA tuition funding. Each year schools taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria, and weightings developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board (AAB) consisting of educators from schools across the country.

The 1,868 colleges, universities and trade schools on the 2014 Military Friendly Schools list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience. These schools have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility and other services to those who served.
