Rose State College is honored to announce it has earned the 2023-2024 Military Friendly® School designation. Rose State was also awarded the designation of Silver, which means the school is within 20% of the top 10 ranked organizations.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation are evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 1,800 schools participated in the 2023-2024 survey, with 665 earning special awards for going above the standard.
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.
“At Rose State, we strive to provide resources that offer the utmost support for military personnel, veterans and their families, and we are honored to receive the 2023-2024 Military Friendly® School Designation and to also receive the Silver designation in recognition of our continued efforts,“ Rose State President Dr. Jeanie Webb said. “We are fortunate to have enjoyed a close partnership with our neighbor, Tinker Air Force Base, which assists us in creating educational programs and training for all of our students that work hand-in-hand with the needs of the marketplace, especially within the continually growing aerospace and cybersecurity fields.”
The 2023-2024 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May and October issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.
