Alliant International University Named "Top Military Friendly School" for 2011

San Diego, CA: Today, GI Jobs Magazine will release online its list of "Military Friendly Schools" representing the top fifteen percent of undergraduate and graduate schools doing the most to embrace America's military students. Alliant International University is at the top of the GI Jobs Magazine list available online at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com/2011 list.

"The 'Military Friendly Schools' list is the gold standard to help service members, veterans, spouses and dependents know which schools offer them the greatest opportunity, flexibility and service," says Tina Moncada, director of the Military and Veterans Program at Alliant International University.

Tens of billions of dollars in tuition monies are available to military students nationally through the Post 9/11 GI Bill. Alliant's Military and Veterans Program includes: an on-campus Psychological Counseling Center; health center; career center; and exceptional financial aid. Cost is reduced or eliminated for those who qualify for Federal assistance, and for those who don't, Alliant awards a $5,000 per year scholarship for undergraduate military students. And because of the Transferability of Education Benefits provision in the new Post 9/11 GI Bill, Alliant's program is able to serve military spouses and dependent children as well.
