Central Ohio Technical College and Ohio State Named to Military Friendly Schools ® List

​​​​Central Ohio Technical College and The Ohio State University have been named to the 2015 Military Friendly Schools® list. The Military Friendly Schools® list honors the top 20 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. ​“Inclusion on the 2015 list of Military Friendly Schools® shows Central Ohio Technical College and Ohio State’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, Vice President at Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran. “The need for education is growing and our mission is to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools.”  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 1,868 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.  In its sixth consecutive year, the Military Friendly® Schools list is the only resource based on a complimentary and rigorous quantitative assessment that measures schools on criteria created by Victory Media with the assistance of an independent Academic Advisory Board, and graded by an automated research suite. A complete description of our methodology, advisory board and complimentary services is available at MilitaryFriendly.com/FAQ​. G.I. Jobs® is the primary resource for service members and veterans seeking education and employment opportunities.  Central Ohio Technical College and The Ohio State University at Newark have forged an outstanding array of educational opportunities for the central Ohio region and beyond.
