Asher College is proud to announce it has been awarded a Gold designation in the non-traditional schools category of the 2020-2021 Military Friendly School list. Given annually by VIQTORY, these designations recognize schools that go above and beyond to accommodate military veterans.
Las Vegas, NV, Mar 09, 2021 /prREACH/ -- Asher College of Las Vegas is honored to announce it has earned a 2020-2021 Military Friendly® School Gold designation. Asher is proud of its long history of individualized student support, and Asher prioritizes each student and believes in supporting the veteran community. Asher College is a career-training vocational school with three locations: Las Vegas, Nevada; Sacramento, California; and Dallas, Texas.
The Military Friendly® School list is created annually by VIQTORY, a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB). VIQTORY, founded in 2001, connects the military community to civilian employment, educational and entrepreneurial opportunities through its G.I. Jobs® and Military Friendly® brands. VIQTORY and its brands are not a part of or endorsed by the U.S. Department of Defense or any government entity. Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey.
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by VIQTORY 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.
VIQTORY’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.”
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 www.militaryfriendly.com.
