South University Named Among Top Military Friendly Schools

South University is pleased to announce that G.I. Jobs Magazine has selected its 15 campus locations as a Military Friendly school. The university now appears on the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools. The list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America's veterans as students. Schools listed have a shared priority of recruiting students with military experience.

The list was compiled through exhaustive research conducted with more than 17,000 schools nationwide via a data driven survey administered by Victory Media, a veteran-owned business and publisher of G.I. Jobs and the Guide to Military Friendly Schools®. The survey weighting, methodology, and resulting schools list is independently certified by Ernst and Young.

Criteria for making the Military Friendly Schools list included efforts to recruit and retain military and veteran students, results in recruiting military and veteran students, and academic accreditations. Schools on the list also offer additional benefits to student veterans including on-campus veteran programs, credit for service, military spouse programs and more.

South University is also a member of Service member Opportunity Colleges (SOC), a consortium of more than 1,800 institutions pledged to reasonable cooperation with service members and veterans who are trying to earn degrees even while pursuing demanding careers. As a SOC member, the University is committed to easing the transfer of relevant course credits, providing flexible academic residency requirements, and crediting learning from appropriate military training and work experiences.
