Seton Hill University Earns 2021-2022 Military Friendly ® School Designation
Seton Hill University has earned the 2021-2022 Military Friendly® School designation.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Over 1,200 schools participated in the 2021-2022 survey with 747 earning the designation. 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.
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 response set and government/agency public data sources, within a logic based scoring assessment. Measurements include 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.
“Seton Hill University has a long-standing commitment to ensuring veterans and their dependents receive a high-quality education and have access to programs that enable their success in the classroom and in their future careers,” said Seton Hill President Mary C. Finger. “This commitment dates back to World War II when Seton Hill educated a group of male veterans returning from their service even though the institution was, at the time, a women’s college. Over the past 75 years, Seton Hill has continued to serve veterans and their dependents through the Yellow Ribbon program, which extends additional tuition benefits beyond the GI Bill, and works to meet the unique needs of student veterans through a variety of academic, counseling and career readiness support services. Seton Hill has also expanded its outreach to alumni veterans through the establishment of the Seton Hill Veterans Alumni Affinity group, further engaging with our community of veterans even after graduation.”
“Military Friendly® is committed to transparency and providing consistent data driven standards in our designation process. This creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages colleges to consistently evolve and invest in their programs. Schools who achieve designation show true commitment and dedication in their efforts. 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,” said Kayla Lopez, National Director of Military Partnerships, Military Friendly®.
