Clarkson University Again Named to Military Friendly Schools List

For the seventh consecutive year, Clarkson University has been designated a Military Friendly School by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs, STEM Jobs and Military Spouse.

Military Friendly School - MF '17 AwardClarkson 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.

First published in 2009, Military Friendly Schools is provided to service members and their families, helping them select the best college, university, or trade school to receive the education and training needed to pursue a civilian career.

"Our ability to apply a clear, consistent standard to the majority of colleges gives veterans a comprehensive view of which schools are striving to provide the best opportunities and conditions for our nation’s student veterans," says Daniel Nichols, a Navy Reserve veteran and chief product officer at Victory Media. "Military Friendly helps military families make the best use of the Post-9/11 GI Bill and other federal benefits while allowing us to further our goal of assisting them in finding success in their chosen career fields."

Clarkson will be showcased along with other 2017 Military Friendly Schools in the annual Guide to Military Friendly Schools, special education issues of G .I. Jobs and Military Spouse magazine, and on militaryfriendly.com .
