Liberty deemed 'military friendly' by GI Jobs
October 14, 2011 | Heather Usewicz
Liberty University Online has once again been named as one of the leading military friendly schools by “GI Jobs” magazine, for the third year in a row.
The list of military friendly schools is compiled annually for the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trades schools around the nation.
Liberty made the list of Military Friendly Schools as a result of efforts to provide quality education and generous military benefits through its online and resident academic programs.
“Liberty University has provided me with invaluable tools to succeed in academics while performing my military duties,” Liberty Online graduate Caleb Nichols said.
Military students enjoy a flexible learning program with Liberty Online and receive college credit for their military training and DANTES/CLEP exams. While experiencing financial benefits such as tuition discounts, fee waivers, and free book vouchers, servicemembers also have the support of military and veteran benefit specialists through Liberty Online's dedicated Military Affairs Office, who can help students navigate through the benefit process.
Liberty is also an active member of the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges consortium, and partners with Air University - Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC) Program, Navy College Program Distance Learning Program (NCPDLP), College of the American Soldier, GoArmyEd, and the Dept. of Veterans Affairs Yellow Ribbon Program.
