NORFOLK, Neb. – Northeast Community College has earned the 2022-2023 Military Friendly® School designation. Institutions earning the designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 1,800 schools participated in the 2022-2023 survey with 665 earning special awards for going above the standard.
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Viqtory with input from the Military Friendly Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with the assessment of 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.
"We are again honored to be designated a Military Friendly college," said Amanda Nipp, vice president of student services at Northeast. "We understand the transition from the military to civilian life can be a challenge. Helping members of the military successfully make the transition to civilian to life and to be a college student is the least we can do to thank them for their service to our country.”
“Military Friendly is committed to transparency and providing consistent data-driven standards in our designation process. Our standards provide a benchmark that promotes positive outcomes and support services that better the educational landscape and provide opportunity for the military community,” said Kayla Lopez, national director of military partnerships for Military Friendly. “This creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages colleges to evolve and invest in their programs consistently. Schools who achieve awards designation show true commitment in their efforts, going over and above that standard.”
The 2022-2023 Military Friendly Schools list will be published in the May and October issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and may be found at militaryfriendly.com.
