Clarkson University Again Named to Military Friendly Schools List

For the sixth consecutive year, Clarkson University has been designated a Military Friendly School by Victory Media, the leader in successfully connecting the military and civilian worlds.

Military FriendlyThe Military Friendly Schools designation and list by Victory Media is the premier, trusted resource for post-military success. Military Friendly provides service members and their families with transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities.

The Military Friendly Schools designation is awarded to the top schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students, and to dedicate resources to ensure their success both in the classroom and after graduation. The methodology used for making the Military Friendly Schools list has changed the student veteran landscape to one much more transparent, and has played a significant role over the past seven years in capturing and advancing best practices to support military students across the country.


Clarkson University provides full tuition benefits to qualifying post-9-11 active duty service members, veterans and eligible dependents of military personnel under the federal government’s Yellow Ribbon Program.

With a long history of military preparation on its campus, Clarkson's Army and Air Force ROTC units are consistently recognized in Washington Monthly magazine's annual college guide as having one of the highest concentrations of ROTC military service in the nation. Students in these programs are the recipients of numerous awards and recognition for their scholastic work as well as success in field training.

The PayScale Inc. College Salary Report also lists Clarkson graduates as having some of the highest salaries in the nation

The Military Friendly Schools designation process includes extensive research and a data-driven survey of thousands of schools nationwide approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill funding. The school survey, methodology, criteria and weightings are developed with the assistance of an independent advisory board comprised of educators and HR, diversity and recruitment professionals from schools across the country. The survey is administered for free and open to all post-secondary schools who wish to participate.

Based in Pittsburgh, Victory Media is a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business that connects classrooms to careers for the nation’s next generation of professionals.

Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world's pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and the health professions, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
