Sep 20, 2013
Ashford University has been named to the 2014 Military Friendly Schools® list by G.I. Jobs magazine. The list recognizes the top 20 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members and veteran students and ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation.
“Ashford University is dedicated to supporting our nation’s military and is honored to be recognized on this list,” said Dr. Richard Pattenaude, president and chief executive officer of Ashford University. “The University’s relationship with the military is a natural one. Pursuing an education can be difficult for these courageous men and women who are often faced with demanding and dynamic schedules. Ashford’s progressive, online, digital platform allows service members to earn their college degree while serving our country from anywhere in the world.”
The 2014 List of Military Friendly Schools® was compiled through extensive research and by surveying more than 10,000 VA-approved schools nationwide using criteria, methodology, and weighting developed by an Academic Advisory Board. This year’s list criteria also incorporate a survey of more than 4,000 actual student veterans. Schools on the list offer military scholarships and discounts, veterans clubs, military credit, and other services to those who have served in the armed forces.
Ashford University provides military education benefits to all eligible service members and their spouses. The University's military grant also waives technology fees and pays for all books and applicable shipping costs for qualified military students.
