For third consecutive year G.I. Jobs, a magazine for military personnel transitioning to civilian life, has named Post University a military friendly school. The distinction as a military friendly school emphasizes the prioritization Post places on, and support the university offers to, military service members, their dependents, and veterans.
G.I. Jobs’ 2013 list, the fourth put out by the magazine, was compiled utilizing surveys submitted by more than 12,000 colleges and universities. The surveys were then weighted by an academic advisory board, which featured a mixture of higher education professionals and people familiar with the difficulties of transitioning between military and civilian life, who took into account various criteria, such as a school’s non-financial efforts to recruit and retain active duty military and veteran students.
Among the programs and policies considered by the advisory board were whether or not the school has Department of Veteran Affairs approval to accept the G.I. Bill and the school’s policies on accepting credit by exam. Of the 12,000 colleges surveyed, less than 1,750 were determined to be a military friendly school.
