Colorado Springs, CO, Feb 23, 2020 /prREACH/ -- IntelliTec College is honored to announce it has earned a 2020-2021 Military Friendly® School designation. IntelliTec College is proud of its long history of individualized student support, and IntelliTec prioritizes each student and believes in supporting the veteran community. IntelliTec College is a career-training vocational school with four locations: Grand Junction, Pueblo and Colorado Springs, Colorado, and Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Dr. Dave Scott, Campus Director at IntelliTec’s Colorado Springs campus, was excited to announce the Military Friendly® designation. "As a 25 year veteran of the U.S. Army, this designation means a lot to me personally and to our campus as a whole. We appreciate and value our veteran students and the large veteran population in our surrounding communities. We are truly honored to be able to serve those who have served our great country," Dr. Scott said.
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.
