Granite State College is proud to share it has again earned the Military Friendly® School designation for 2022-2023. This year, the college has received the “silver” distinction, indicating it has gone “over and above” the 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 1,800 schools participated in the 2022-2023 survey with 665 earning special awards for going above the standard.
The 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 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.
Statement from Tara Payne, Vice President of Enrollment at Granite State College:
“At Granite State College, being Military Friendly® is ingrained into our mission. Our flexible, transfer-friendly online programs and military supports, including dedicated advising, credit for military training, and tuition discounts for servicemembers and their spouses, make higher education affordable and accessible for the military community.”
Statement from Kayla Lopez, National Director of Military Partnerships, Military Friendly®:
“Military Friendly® is committed to transparency and providing consistent data-driven standards in our designation process. Our standards provide a benchmark that promotes positive outcomes and support services that better the educational landscape and provide opportunity for the Military Community. This creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages colleges to evolve and invest in their programs consistently. Schools who achieve awards designation show true commitment in their efforts, going over and above that standard.”
