Colorado Technical University Selected As A Top Military-Friendly School In Military Advanced Education’s 2014 Guide To Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities

Stocks in this article: CECO

Military Advanced Education (MAE) has awarded Colorado Technical University (CTU) the designation of a Top Military-Friendly University in its 2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities, recently released in print, and available online at www.mae-kmi.com.

“We consider it a privilege to serve America’s servicemen and servicewomen. And we’re proud to be included in this guide that recognizes our efforts to help military personnel and their families earn a degree, advance their military career or enter (or reenter) the civilian workforce,” said Dr. Constance Johnson, chief academic officer and provost of CTU. “It is our intention to continue serving this community well and to strengthen our long-standing relationship with the U.S. Armed Forces.”

From community colleges to state universities, online universities and nationally known centers of higher learning, MAE’s 2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities provides prospective students with information about institutions that support to our men and women in uniform.

Among the attributes considered in evaluating this year’s institutions for inclusion in the guide are: the flexibility of online learning options, extent of transfer credits accepted by degree level, on-campus ROTC, Servicemember Opportunity Colleges (SOC) participation, on-campus active duty/veteran assistance, the support provided to the families of servicemembers, and faculty trained in veteran reintegration issues, to name but a few.

“Our staff used strict criteria to evaluate the submissions, and we had a record number of schools participating this year. We believe the Guide serves as an invaluable resource when advising servicemembers about their educational opportunities or for military personnel researching them independently,” said Kelly Fodel, MAE’s editor. “The searchable online database contains all the survey questions and answers provided by the schools, as well as explanations about critical issues like the schools’ activation and deployment policies, withdrawal policies, and scholarship and financial aid information.”

Inclusion in the MAE’s 2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities is among the many acknowledgements CTU has received for supporting military students. For five consecutive years, CTU has also been recognized as a top military-friendly school by Victory Media Inc. – the publishers of G.I. Jobs magazine, Military Spouse magazine and Vetrepreneur magazine . Additionally, the university ranked among the top 20 Military Times “Best of Vets” Online and Traditional Colleges (2014).

In order to show its strong support for military personnel, veterans and their families, since 2008 CTU has awarded 300 full scholarships worth nearly $6.5 million through its Wounded Warrior Scholarship program.
