Baker College Online Awarded Military Friendly School Title By G.I. Jobs Magazine
Baker College Online officials announced that it has been awarded the designation of Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs magazine, a premier publication for military personnel transitioning into civilian life. The 2012 list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members and veterans as students.
“We are very proud to once again be named a Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs,” said Shawn Mann, Baker College Online director of military education programs. “We offer many benefits to individuals with military experience, including waived fees, reduced tuition and lifetime career services. All of our efforts are aimed at helping our members of the armed forces from all branches of the military obtain a quality higher education degree.”
The 2012 Military Friendly Schools list was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 8,000 schools nationwide. Methodology, criteria and weighting for the list were developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board (AAB) comprised of educators from schools across the country. A list of the board members can be found at militaryfriendlyschools.com/article/advisoryboard/.
A full story and detailed list of Military Friendly Schools will be highlighted in the annual Guide to Military Friendly Schools and on a poster, both of which will be distributed to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel in October 2011.
G.I. Jobs is published by Victory Media, a veteran-owned business that also publishes The Guide to Military Friendly Schools, Military Spouse and Vetrepreneur magazines, and annually rates the nation’s “Military Friendly Employers,” “Military Spouse Friendly Employers” and “Best Corporations for Veteran-Owned Businesses.”
