Victory Media, the premier publisher of magazines for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has again awarded Gateway Technical College the designation of Military Friendly School.
The 2021-22 Military Friendly Schools ratings recognize colleges with leading programs for veterans, members of the armed forces leaving military service, and military spouses. Gateway has received this designation since 2010 and this year earned the Bronze Designation. A Bronze Designation is for colleges that “have exceptional military/veteran programs — and this award showcases their dedication” according to Victory Media.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation were evaluated using public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 1,200 schools participated in the 2021-22 survey with 747 earning the designation.
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined 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 response set and public government agency data sources, within a logic-based scoring assessment. The group measures each institution’s ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence, and loan default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
