Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School Designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 1,800 schools participated in the 2024-2025 survey with 537 earning special awards for going above the standard.

The 2024-2025 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May and October issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at

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.

“NC Wesleyan University acknowledges the value that student veterans and their families bring to our campus.  We are committed to supporting our military-connected students by ensuring that each student has the resources needed to be successful. Our designation as a Top 10 Military Friendly® school shows the efforts made by faculty and staff to honor and support our military community at Wesleyan.” Laura Brown, Associate Dean of Veteran Services.

Active military student, Madison (Woods) Duff, describes first hand why Wesleyan is a top-10 military friendly school. “I am currently Active-duty Air Force and everyone at NCWU has been so helpful and understanding when it comes to needing extensions due to military obligations. Wesleyan made the application process so easy and I love the online, asynchronous format of my classes. I am pursuing a bachelors degree in Organizational Leadership, which I plan to use once I get out of the military. I am proud to be a student at NCWU!”, states Madison.

“Military Friendly® is committed to transparency and providing consistent data-driven standards in our designation process. Our standards provide a benchmark that promotes positive outcomes and support services that better the educational landscape and provide opportunity for the Military Community. This creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages Institutions to evolve and invest in their programs consistently. Schools who achieve awards designation show true commitment in their efforts, going over and above that standard.” – Kayla Lopez, National Director of Military Partnerships, Military Friendly.®
