Lock Haven University among nation’s top Military Friendly Schools

LOCK HAVEN — Lock Haven University has been named one of the nation’s top Military Friendly Schools for 2018 by Victory Media. For 16 years, the Military Friendly Schools list has provided a comprehensive guide for veterans and their families using data sources from federal agencies, veteran students and proprietary survey information from participating organizations.

According to victorymedia.com, more than 1,300 schools participated in the 2017-18 survey with 849 earning the designation. LHU met and exceeded all benchmark standards for Military Friendly ratings including academic policies and compliance, admissions and orientation, culture and commitment, financial aid and assistance, graduation and career, and military student support and retention.

Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Victory 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.
