UHD Recognized for Excellence in Supporting Military Students

MF_SchoolsThe University of Houston-Downtown has been named on Victory Media's annual list of "Military Friendly Schools," which recognizes institutions with a proven commitment to the success of veteran students.

The annual list is compiled by extensive research, institutional surveys and reviews by current students. Designations are determined by a data-driven methodology that measures a number of criteria including: military support on campus, academic credibility, percentage of military students, and potential to earn academic credit for military service. UHD ranked high in the flexibility category, denoting its flexible scheduling, online course offerings, and special policies for military students called to active duty.

The 2015 list was posted on GIJobs.com, a website dedicated to easing the military transition to civilian life by providing service men and women with education and employment tools and resources. The website also launched a free, online portal for veterans to explore and compare more than 4,000 schools that accept GI Bill tuition benefits.
