UofM Named a Top 10 Military Friendly School, Its Fourth Straight Year on List
December 4, 2017 - The University of Memphis has been named to the Military Friendly Schools List for the fourth consecutive year by Victory Media, originator of the Military Friendly group of education and career resources for veterans and their families. The UofM is ranked No. 9 among Tier 2 research institutions. The list honors the top colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace military service members and veterans as students and ensure their success on campus.
Among the UofM's military-friendly features are: a Veterans and Military Student Services Center, which provides services and support for veterans and military students; a wide range of online courses and degree programs; participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program; seamless transfer of credits from community colleges; and three ROTC programs – Army, Navy and Air Force. In addition, the Memphis area is home to Naval Support Activity Mid-South and its strong military community.
This summer, the UofM was one of 13 colleges selected to receive the Veteran Reconnect Grant, a competitive grant aimed at improving the success of student veterans enrolled in Tennessee colleges and universities. The $60,734 award will make earning a college degree easier by allowing the University to assess military experience and training and then identify college credits to award to student veterans.
The list of Military Friendly Schools is compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of employers, schools, franchise systems and cities nationwide.
