Asher College is proud to announce they have been awarded a top-ten spot in the non-traditional school’s category of the 2018-2019 Military Friendly® School designations. Given annually by Victory Media, these designations recognize schools that go above and beyond to accommodate military veterans.
Apr 25, 2018 /prREACH/ -- Asher College is honored to announce they have earned a 2018-2019 Military Friendly® School designation. Asher College was given the “Gold” designation and rated fifth among non-traditional schools. With locations in Sacramento, California; Las Vegas, Nevada; and Dallas, Texas, Asher College is proud of its long history of individualized student support. Asher College prioritizes each student and believes in supporting the veteran community.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. For the first time, student survey data was taken into consideration for the designation. More than 1,400 schools participated in the 2018-2019 survey, and 941 earned the designation.
The 2018-2019 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May 2018 issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at the Military Friendly website.
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 an 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.
Victory Media’s Chief Product Officer Daniel Nichols stated, “Our ability to apply a clear, consistent standard to colleges creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages colleges to invest in programs to provide educational outcomes that are better for veterans.”
Victory Media creates the Military Friendly® School list annually. The Military Friendly® School list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources for over 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans, and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly® Schools survey from participating institutions. The survey questions, methodology, criteria and weighting were developed with the assistance of an independent research firm and an advisory council of educators and employers. The survey is administered for free and is open to all post-secondary schools that wish to participate. Criteria for consideration may be found at the Military Friendly website.
