UW-Platteville selected as a top military-friendly school in Military Advanced Education's 2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities

  • PLATTEVILLE, Wis., February 3, 2014 – Military Advanced Education (MAE) has awarded UW-Platteville the designation of a Top Military-Friendly University in its 2014 Guide to  Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities, just released in print , and available online at www.mae-kmi.com.

    From community colleges to state universities, online universities and nationally known centers of higher learning, MAE’s 2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities provides potential students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to our men and women in uniform.

    Among the attributes considered in evaluating this year’s institution for inclusion in the Guide are the flexibility of online learning options, extent of transfer credits accepted by degree level, on-campus ROTC, Servicemember Opportunity Colleges (SOC) participation, on-campus active duty/veteran assistance, the support provided to the families of servicemembers, faculty trained in veteran reintegration issues, presence on military installations, and  full-time counselors trained in veteran-specific mental health concerns, to name but a few.

    “Our staff used strict criteria to evaluate the submissions of the respondents, and we had a record number of schools participating this year. We believe the Guide serves as an invaluable tool for both education services officers and transition officers when advising servicemembers about their educational opportunities,” said Kelly Fodel, MAE’s editor. 

    “I encourage students and ESOs to check out our searchable database online,” Fodel said. “We designed this database with the military student in mind. We want to help them make informed choices, so we are giving them access to all the survey questions and answers provided by the schools, as well as explanations about critical issues like the schools’ activation and deployment policies, withdrawal policies, scholarship and financial aid information and important support information.”

    "This designation demonstrates our high level of commitment to meeting the needs of our men and women in the military no matter where they are, across the country or on the other side of the world," said Dawn Drake, executive director of Alternative Delivery Systems for UW-Platteville.
