UNLV Named a Military Friendly School
UNLV Named a Military Friendly School

 

A magazine dedicated to helping military personnel transition into civilian life has named UNLV a Military Friendly School for the third straight year.

G.I Jobs Magazine looked at more than 12,000 colleges, universities and trade schools around the country. The list only honored the top 15 percent of schools.

The list of military friendly schools highlights institutions that put a priority on recruiting students with military experience, offer scholarships, have a veterans' club and include military credits.

According to UNLV, an estimated 1,1000 students at the university are either veterans or active duty military members. The school has a dedicated Office of Veterans Services which helps veterans, active duty and spouses find their way through any academic or administrative issue. The office also helps students process their G.I. Bill applications. 

“Thousands of veterans will be returning from serving in the military in the next few years and it is our job to ensure veterans have the resources they need to make sure the transition to civilian life and college is a smooth one,” said Ross Bryant, director of UNLV Veteran Services and a veteran who served in the Army for 24 years.  

The list included information from a survey of 3,000 students who are veterans. Go to militaryfriendlyschools.com, to see a complete list of schools.
