Chowan University Earns 2022-2023 Military Friendly ® School Designation
Chowan University announced today that it has earned the 2022-2023 Military Friendly® School designation.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 1,800 schools participated in the 2022-2023 survey with 665 earning special awards for going above the standard.
The 2022-2023 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.
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 Repayment, Persistence (Degree Advancement or Transfer) and Loan Default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
Richard Todd, Chowan University Registrar, and veteran, commented on the institution’s commitment to student veterans saying, “Chowan University is pleased to announce that it has been designated again as a Military Friendly® School. Chowan continues to support veterans and their dependents achieve their educational goals and opening doors to brighter futures and fulfilling careers.”
“Military Friendly® is committed to transparency and providing consistent data-driven standards in our designation process. Our standards provide a benchmark that promotes positive outcomes and support services that better the educational landscape and provide opportunity for the Military Community. This creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages colleges to evolve and invest in their programs consistently. Schools who achieve awards designation show true commitment in their
efforts, going over and above that standard.” – Kayla Lopez, National Director of Military Partnerships, Military Friendly®.
