(OAKLAND CITY) – Oakland City University announces that it has earned the 2020-2021 Military Friendly ® School designation. This year will be the 11th year that OCU has earned this designation.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly ® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 1,000 schools participated in the 2020- 2021 survey with 695 earning the designation.
The 2020-2021 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.
“Oakland City University is proud of its tradition of serving student veterans.” stated Dr. Ron Dempsey, president of OCU. “One of our central values at the university is the support of God and Country and being designated as a Military Friendly® School is a tangible expression of that
Military Friendly’s National Director Josh Rosen stated, “Our ability to apply a clear, consistent standard to colleges creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages colleges to invest in programs to provide educational outcomes that are better for the Military Community as a whole.”
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Viqtory 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.
