For the fifth consecutive year, Alliant International University has been named to Victory Media’s annual list of Military Friendly® Schools.
Now in its sixth year, the Military Friendly® Schools designation and list awards the top 15 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools in the U.S. that are doing the most to embrace military students and dedicate resources to ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation.
Alliant is committed to supporting our nation’s military students, and we are honored to be a recurring school on the Military Friendly® list. Alliant is especially proud to give students personalized service through one central point of contact in our Military and Veterans Affairs Office, making it easier to navigate through the different university departments and processes. Alliant students receive additional military benefits, including: course credit equivalency for military training, a student veteran organization, tutoring services, an annual $5,000 scholarship benefiting qualified, undergraduate military students, and an on-campus health and wellness center, career center, and counseling center. All Alliant students benefit from small class sizes, mature one-on-one relationships with supportive faculty, and a focus on mastering a profession, not just earning a degree.
Alumna of Alliant's bachelor's in psychology program and U.S. Navy Veteran Laura Jacobson presents her research at the 2014 American Psychological Association Annual Convention. Jacobson graduated with the Class of 2014 receiving the award for Outstanding Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and Summa Cum Laude Honors.
Over the past six years, the Military Friendly® Schools list has become a trusted source for service members, providing transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities. The 2015 list of Military Friendly Schools ® is based on a survey of more than 10,000 VA-approved schools nationwide and the survey criteria, weightings, and methodology are developed with the assistance of an academic advisory board consisting of educators from schools across the country. Its rigorous survey methodology is refined and improved each year to capture best practices in supporting military students. The survey results were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP.
