UTI Campuses Awarded 2014 Military Friendly Schools Designation

The 2014 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America's military service members, veterans and spouses as students, and to ensure their success on campus.

Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named Universal Technical Institute (UTI), Motorcycle Mechanics Institute and Marine Mechanics Institute (MMI) and NASCAR Technical Institute (NASCAR Tech) to its Military Friendly Schools list.

The 2014 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans and spouses as students, and to ensure their success on campus.
 
"Inclusion on the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Universal Technical Institute’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students," said Sean Collins, vice president at Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran. "The need for education is growing and our mission is to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools."  
 
The Military Friendly Schools website, www.militaryfriendlyschools.com, features the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences.

The 1,868 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience. These schools have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility and other services to those who served.
 
"The training and support services we provide have a huge bearing on how well a veteran student makes the transition from a military setting to the classroom," said John Decoteau, director of military admissions, UTI. "We are bridging the gap between our veteran students and employment, and are proud to be recognized for our commitment to these individuals who have served our country."
 
Now in its fifth year, the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 10,000 schools nationwide approved for VA tuition funding. The survey results that comprise the 2014 list were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media.

Each year, schools taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board (AAB) consisting of educators from schools across the country.  
 
Complete survey methodology is available at militaryfriendlyschools.com/Article/methodology-press-kit.
