Mount Marty Earns Military Friendly Designation
February 11, 2020
Mount Marty announced today that it has earned the 2020-2021 Military Friendly® School 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.
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.
“Mount Marty is committed to providing an exceptional education to our military and veteran students, and we are grateful for the opportunity to serve those men and women who have given so much to our country,” said Mount Marty President Marcus Long. “This distinction illustrates the determination of our faculty and staff to provide a welcoming environment to those who have served.”
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.”
Earlier this year, Mount Marty College announced a partnership with ROTC. Through the partnership, up to 10% of the undergraduate nursing program class would be reserved for ROTC cadets.
Mount Marty also offers students military benefits. More information on that is available on Mount Marty’s Military Benefits page, located at www.mountmarty.edu/academics/registrar/military-benefits.
