Holy Family University has been named a 2017 Military Friendly® School by Victory Media.
First published in 2009, Military Friendly® Schools is the most comprehensive, powerful resource for veterans today. Each year, the list of Military Friendly® 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.
Holy Family University’s Veterans' Affairs Programs, part of the Registrar’s services, has been committed to making a private, post-secondary education affordable for all veterans and their dependents.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from Victory Media’s proprietary survey. More than 1,700 schools participated in the 2017 survey; 1,273 were awarded with the designation. Ratings methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Victory Media with input from the Military Friendly® 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.
“Holy Family University is committed to making all students feel welcome and at home in our halls, especially veterans, who have served our country and now want to come back and receive a college education,” said Sr. Maureen McGarrity, President of Holy Family University. “We are honored to have earned this distinction from Victory Media, and will continue to make an effort to ease the transition from solider to student for our veterans.”
