September 26, 2014 – Cypress, CA – Trident University International (Trident) has announced this week that it has been designated a 2015 Military Friendly® School by Victory Media, the leader in successfully connecting the military and civilian worlds. This is the fourth such time the University has been recognized.
The 100% online Trident, which has been in operation since 1998, is regionally accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Active duty, reserve and National Guard service-members make up 66% of the University’s population, and several veterans work for Trident at the faculty, staff, and management levels.
Now in its sixth year, the Military Friendly® Schools designation and list by Victory Media is the premier, trusted resource for post-military success. Military Friendly provides service members transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities.
The Military Friendly® Schools designation is awarded to the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students, and to dedicate resources to ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation. The methodology used for making the Military Friendly Schools® list has changed the student veteran landscape to one much more transparent, and has played a significant role over the past six years in capturing and advancing best practices to support military students across the country.
The survey captures over 50 leading practices in supporting military students and is available free of charge to the more than 8,000 schools approved for Post-09/11 GI Bill funding.
