Ashford University Named to the 2010 List of Military Friendly Schools by G.I. Jobs Magazine

Ashford University was recognized in the 2010 List of Military Friendly Schools by G.I. Jobs magazine. The annual list honors the top 16 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools doing the most to embrace America’s veterans as students. 

 The G.I. Jobs list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled by polling more than 7,000 schools in the nation, and with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Committee. Criteria for selection included efforts to recruit and retain military and veteran students, results in recruiting military and veteran students, as well as academic accreditations. 

“This list is especially important now because the recently enacted post 9-11 GI Bill has given veterans the financial means to go to school,” said Rich McCormack, publisher of G.I. Jobs. “Veterans need a trusted friend to help them decide where to get educated. The Military Friendly Schools list is that friend,” he added.

“Ashford University prides itself on its excellent academics and the career transferability of its programs. It is important to us that after these courageous men and women serve and protect our country, they are able to embark upon a quality higher education and career when they return home.” said KC Haight, associate vice president of Military and Corporate Development for Ashford University. 

Ashford University provides education benefits to all qualified military personnel and their spouses.  The university's military grant also waives application and technology fees and pays for all books and applicable shipping costs for qualified military students.  In addition, Ashford University provides a specialized team of advisors who assist students with enrollment, academic and financial needs.
