mfs17_designationsquareFor the seventh consecutive year, Brandman University is a Military Friendly® School chosen by Victory Media, a leader in connecting the military and civilian worlds. Now in its 14th year for companies and eighth year for post-secondary schools, Victory Media’s Military Friendly® ratings recognize colleges and companies with leading programs for veterans, members of the Armed Forces leaving military service and military spouses.

Service members and their families receive the list each year to help them select the college, university or trade school that best meets their needs.

“With nearly a third of our student population identifying as active duty military, veterans or their spouses, it is vital that we support these students and provide them with the education and services they need. We have a shared goal of wanting them to achieve success in their civilian pursuits,” said Brandman University Chancellor Gary Brahm.

Institutions are evaluated using both public data and responses to the Victory Media survey. More than 1,600 schools participated in the 2017 survey. Final ratings combine the institution’s survey scores with an assessment of its ability to meet set thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence and loan default rates for all students and specifically for student veterans.

“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. 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 fields,” said Daniel Nichols, a Navy Reserve veteran and Chief Product Officer at Victory Media.

The survey questions, methodology, criteria and weightings were developed by Victory Media with the assistance of an independent research firm and an advisory council of educators and employers.
