The University of Tulsa has been designated a 2016 Military Friendly School by Victory Media, which helps connect the military and civilian worlds. Now in its seventh year, the Military Friendly School designation provides service members and their families with transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities.
TU also was designated a Top 25 university for Military Friendly graduate programs alongside schools such as Carnegie Mellon University and Boston University.
Institutions compete for the elite Military Friendly School title by completing a survey of more than 100 questions covering 10 categories, including military support on campus, graduation and employment outcomes and military spouse policies. Survey responses were scored against benchmarks across these key indicators of success.
The Military Friendly School 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 both in the classroom and after graduation. The methodology used for making the Military Friendly Schools list has changed the student veteran landscape to one much more transparent and has played a significant role during the past seven years in capturing and advancing best practices to support military students across the country.
