Military-friendly designation

For the ninth year, Saint Francis University has been named a “Military Friendly School” by VIQTORY. This year, the university earned the organization’s Gold Award, which suggests that its programs scored within 10 percent of the 10th ranked institution within a given category. This designation reflects the high standards upheld by the university in serving military families. 

The university's service-focused mission couples well with their duties as active duty or reservist men and women. SFU also welcomes veterans who have honorably served and seek to successfully transition into the classroom where they can share their experiences with fellow students.

SFU maintains a strong ROTC program and an active on-campus Student Veteran Organization. The university also serves dependent children and spouses of eligible military personnel.

How is a school designated “Military Friendly”?

The Military Friendly ® Schools list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources for more than 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans, and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly® Schools survey from participating institutions.

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.

The 2019-2020 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine. The list can also be found at militaryfriendly.com.
