Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named Miller College to the coveted Military Friendly Schools ® list. The 2013 Military Friendly Schools ® list honors the top 15 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 ensure their success on campus.
Miller College currently participates with 6 different VA benefit qualifications, Chapter 30, 31, 33, 35, 1606 and 1607. The College also awards a Michigan Army and Air National Guard Grant, which allows active members of the Army and Air National Guard to go to school at Miller College, use their GI Bill, and receive a tuition discount of 25%. In addition, the College awards a Wounded Warrior Scholarship for $2,500 each fall and spring to military service men or women and/or their immediate family members.
The American Council of Education (ACE) evaluates military training and education and translates that knowledge into credit recommendations. Miller College accepts all ACE recommendations and in addition, the school’s Experiential Learning Team evaluates any training or courses not covered by ACE and goes above and beyond to award credit for that knowledge as well.
The Military Friendly Schools ® media and website, found at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com, feature the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences. The 1,739 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.
