WCU Named Military Friendly School for Fifth Year

Hattiesburg, Miss., September 12, 2013 - Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named William Carey University to the coveted Military Friendly Schools® list for the fifth year in a row. 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 William Carey 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.”

  The schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience.  These institutions have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility and other services to those who served. Now in its fifth year, 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. The survey results that comprise the 2014 list were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media.
