Conshohocken, PA — February 5, 2019 - New Horizons Computer Learning Centers announced today that it has earned the 2019-2020 Military Friendly® School Silver Designation. This will be the seventh consecutive year receiving this award. The 2019 Military Friendly Schools® list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey completed by the school. This year 766 schools earned this prestigious designation.
The 2019 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 Media 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.
“This recognition brings validation that our training programs are an excellent option for Veteran Students who want to enter or further their careers in the IT industry,” said Shelley Morris, executive vice president and chief operations officer. “New Horizons is a premier training provider focusing on training our Veteran students. This recognition promotes New Horizons' ability and desire to assist Veteran students in furthering their career goals.”
