A media outlet for military personnel transitioning into civilian life has named Oklahoma City University to the coveted Military Friendly Schools list for 2018-19. Now in its 17th year, the Military Friendly Schools list by Victory Media honors the top colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans and spouses as students to ensure their success on campus.

Chuck Flint, OCU’s assistant director of transfers and military admissions, said the designation is evidence of the university’s goal of helping students obtain a first-class education.

“Those who serve our country with honor deserve a chance at the best educational opportunities available,” Flint said. “We’re happy to help them with their educational needs, and proud that a media voice of these students has recognized our commitment.”

The Military Friendly Schools designation provides service members, veterans and their families with transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities.

Institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey completed by the school. Student survey data was also taken into consideration for the designation.

More than 1,400 schools participated in the 2018-19 survey, with 941 schools earning the designation. The list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine. The list can also be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.

OCU, a Yellow Ribbon Program school, scored particularly high in the categories of academic policies and compliance, admissions and orientation, and financial aid and assistance. The university is currently in the process of establishing a Veterans’ Resource Center.
