Saint Francis University has been designated a 2017 Military
Friendly® School by Victory Media. The Military Friendly® Schools
designation is awarded to the top 15 percent of colleges, universities
and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace
military students and dedicate resources to ensure their success in the
classroom and after graduation.
With more than 50 current military service members and veterans
taking classes at the University, Saint Francis offers military members
and their families a variety of learning options, through undergraduate,
graduate, and adult degree & continuing studies program options.
Saint Francis also maximizes military transfer credit and credits from
other schools. In addition, current military service members and
veterans are a vibrant part of the campus community, as a strong ROTC
program is maintained, an active Student Veteran Organization is
embraced, and the counseling center is staffed with licensed counselors
trained in veteran-specific mental health concerns.

How is a school designated “Military Friendly”?
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.
The survey is administered for free and open to all post-secondary
schools who wish to participate. Criteria for consideration can be found
on by visiting www.militaryfriendly.com.
