NAZARETH NAMED TO 2017 MILITARY FRIENDLY® SCHOOLS LIST
ROCHESTER, NY (11/11/2016)(readMedia)-- Nazareth College has been named a 2017 Military Friendly® School by Victory Media. The Military Friendly® Schools designation is awarded to the top colleges, universities, community colleges and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students, and to dedicate resources to ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation.
Nazareth College maintains a strong commitment to its veteran students by providing them with multiple resources on campus and within the Rochester Community. The College's office of veterans' affairs supports veteran students with tuition responsibilities, their future career path, and their physical, mental, and social well-being.
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.
