SPSU has been included once again in the Military-Friendly Schools Guide put out annually by G.I. Jobs, a magazine for military personnel transitioning into civilian life. This guide honors only the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members and veterans as students.
SPSU made the 2012 guide published last fall and is listed again in the just-released 2013 guide, available at Military-Friendly Schools Guide.
The Military-Friendly Schools list is compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of schools nationwide. The criteria developed by an academic advisory board includes factors such as tuition benefits, flexible learning programs, the number of military and veteran students enrolled, Veterans Administration approval to accept the GI Bill, membership in Service members Opportunity Colleges, Yellow Ribbon program membership, and academic accreditations.
