MELBOURNE, FLA. — Florida Tech has earned the 2021-2022 Military Friendly® School designation.
Institutions earning the designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Over 1,200 schools participated in the 2021-2022 survey, and 747 earned the designation.
“Florida Tech has been proud to partner with our military service members for many years so that they may continue learning and growing,” said T. Dwayne McCay, president of Florida Tech. “From generals to the enlisted ranks, we’ve brought high-quality educational opportunities to the men and women of our armed forces, enabling them to learn anywhere, at any time. We are pleased to continue this important commitment.”
Measured metrics for the designation included the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence (degree advancement or transfer) and loan default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
“Schools who achieve designation show true commitment and dedication in their efforts,” said Kayla Lopez, national director of military partnerships for Viqtory, the firm that oversees the Military Friendly® Schools program. “Our standards assist schools by providing a benchmark that promotes positive educational outcomes, resources, and support services that better the educational landscape and provide opportunity for the military community.”
The 2021-2022 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.
