Monmouth University has recently been recognized as a 2022-2023 Military Friendly School. Institutions earning this designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 1,800 schools participated in the 2022-2023 survey with 665 earning special awards for going above the standard.
“This symbol signifies Monmouth’s commitment to serving those who have served,” said Xochil Ramirez, coordinator of student support and veteran services. “This recognition acts as a beacon to veterans that Monmouth is an institution that is dedicated to meeting their unique needs,” she added.
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.
The full 2022-2023 Military Friendly Schools list will be published in the May and October issue of “G.I. Jobs” magazine and can be found at militaryfriendly.com.
The Military Friendly Schools list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources from more than 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans, and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly® Schools survey from participating institutions. The survey questions, methodology, criteria and weighting were developed with the assistance of an independent research firm and an advisory council of educators and employers. The survey is administered for free and is open to all postsecondary schools that wish to participate.
