Victory Media, the premier publisher of magazines for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has again awarded Gateway Technical College the designation of Military Friendly School.
The 2019-20 Military Friendly Schools ratings recognize colleges with leading programs for veterans, members of the Armed Forces leaving military service and military spouses. Gateway has received this designation every year since 2010.
The Military Friendly Schools list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources for more than 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly Schools survey from participating institutions.
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.
