Marylhurst University demonstrates commitment to veterans, active military and their families

Military Friendly Schools 2018For the ninth consecutive year, Marylhurst University is among the top of our nation’s schools for demonstrated commitment to military service members, veterans and their families. The Military Friendly® Schools 2018 designation is a data-driven rating produced by Victory Media to provide valuable information about education opportunities for service members, spouses and dependents.

With this 2018 ranking, Marylhurst University has been recognized as a Military Friendly® School for nine consecutive years. This ranking is reflected in the university’s student population: 15 percent of Marylhurst students are active military or veterans. Marylhurst supports these students in many ways, including:

  • Military Service Scholarship (scholarships for spouses and dependents, too)
  • Credit for qualifying military experience through Credit for Prior Learning program
  • Career and internship services (during school and after graduation)
  • Support services (student groups, student veteran study lounge, etc.)

The Military Friendly® Schools designation is awarded to the top schools in the country doing the most to serve military students, dedicating resources to ensure their success while in school and post-graduation.

About Military Friendly® Schools
The Military Friendly® Schools list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources for more than 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans, and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly®​ Schools survey from participating institutions. The survey questions, methodology, criteria and weightings were developed by Victory Media with the assistance of an independent research firm and an advisory council of educators and employers. Data calculations and tabulations were independently evaluated for completeness and accuracy by EY. The survey is administered for free and is open to all post-secondary schools that wish to participate. Criteria for consideration can be found at: https://militaryfriendly.com.
