“Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Millikin University’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, Director for G.I. Jobs and Vice President at Victory Media. “As interest in education grows we’re thrilled to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools.” said Sean Collins.

The Military Friendly Schools media and website, found at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com
, feature the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences. The 1,739 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience.
“Our women and men who serve our country in the military deserve every opportunity to further their education at colleges and universities that appreciate their courage and commitment,” remarked Dr. Harold G. Jeffcoat, president of Millikin University. “Millikin University is proud to be among other leading colleges who welcome our military families as students and employees.”
Now in its fourth year, the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide. The survey tabulation process, methodology and weightings that comprise the 2013 list were independently verified by Ernst and Young LLP. Each year schools taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board (AAB) consisting of educators from schools across the country.

A full story and detailed list of 2013 Military Friendly Schools will be highlighted in the annual G.I. Jobs Guide to Military Friendly Schools
, distributed in print and digital format to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel in early October.
