2014 GUIDE TO Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities Welcome to Military Advanced Education’s 2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities. This year’s survey had a record number of participants—nearly 500 schools responded to our extensive questionnaire. Our goal in designing the survey was to take into consideration the military-friendly characteristics most relevant to you, the prospective student. This year, for the first time, we invited schools to submit an essay in addition to the questionnaire to detail their militaryfriendly policies. This essay helped create a clear picture of each school’s culture and services for students; allowing institutions to describe the intangibles that sometimes aren’t apparent in a survey format. Color-coded dashboards throughout the Guide display the results of our survey. They consist of five gauges representing key categories of consideration to servicemembers, veterans, their spouses and dependents: Military Culture, Financial Assistance, Flexibility, Online Support and Support On Campus. The online support score is a new one for this year, as we understand that some schools are more Internet-based, and that some military students might strongly base their education choices on a school’s online presence. It is important to note that we could only evaluate the information that was provided; each institution was responsible for disclosure. Responses to the survey questions were assigned weights to reflect their relative importance within each of the five categories, and were then totaled to determine their score for that gauge. Each dashboard gauge has a shaded background that shows the maximum potential points for that category. Against that background is a darker bar, which shows how many points that school achieved. You’ll see that we have included the results for all the schools that responded to our questionnaire. We

believe that having as much data as possible will help prospective students make a well-informed decision about which school best suits their needs. Although we are not ranking schools in the Guide, we have recognized the schools that exhibited strong military-friendly policies with an MAE 2014 top military-friendly logo to use in their promotional materials. As in previous years, all institutions were judged based on the same criteria; we did not judge private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year, or two-year colleges separately, because we believe that regardless of size or degrees granted, there are efforts that any school can make to better serve those who have served our nation. The print version of the Guide isn’t the only resource that MAE has prepared for you. Visit www.mae-kmi.com to view our searchable database of schools. Here, you may access and review all of the survey answers from all of the participating institutions, and see all the information we used in evaluating submissions. The database is searchable by school name, state, online campus or brick-and-mortar campus. This tool is invaluable for comparing and contrasting the schools on your list of consideration. Good luck to you in the next stage of your academic journey.

And today, even in the face of a new national cap, we have reaffirmed our Yellow Ribbon commitment to cover all tuition and mandatory fees for eligible post9/11 veterans and dependents.
