Point Park Named to Victory Media's 2017 Military Friendly® Schools List Monday, November 28, 2016
Point Park University has earned the 2017 Military FriendlyÂ® School designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. JobsÂ®, STEM Jobs SM and Military Spouse.
"To be honored again as a Military-Friendly School is something in which Point Park University takes great pride," said President Paul Hennigan. "We are an enthusiastic participant in the Post 9/11 GI Bill and work diligently to understand the needs of veterans and their families."
First published in 2009, Military FriendlyÂ® Schools is the most comprehensive, powerful resource for veterans. Each year, the list of Military FriendlyÂ® Schools is provided to service members and their families, helping them select the best college, university, or trade school to receive the education and training needed to pursue a civilian career.
Institutions earning the Military FriendlyÂ® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from Victory Media's proprietary survey.
Ratings methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Victory Media with input from the Military FriendlyÂ® 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.
Point Park University proudly participates in the GI Bill, including the Yellow Ribbon Program.
