For the fifth consecutive year, Marylhurst University has been named one of the top military friendly schools in the nation.
Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named Marylhurst University to the Military Friendly Schools list. 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 on campus.
"Inclusion on the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools® shows Marylhurst University's commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students," said Sean Collins, Vice President at Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran. "The need for education is growing and our mission is to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools."
Marylhurst was recognized for its leading practices in recruitment and retention of students with military experience and its on-campus student support services, such as credit policies, flexible class schedules and prior learning assessment.
