Athens State Earns Military Friendly Designation

Founders Hall

Athens State University has earned a Military Friendly® School designation for 2021-2022 from Military Friendly®. The 747 schools nationwide included on this list provide the best higher education opportunities for veterans, their spouses, and the military community.

Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. 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 response set and government/agency public data sources, within a logic based scoring assessment. 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, was all measured.

The 2021-2022 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine. The complete list can also be found at

The survey is administered for free and is open to all post-secondary schools that wish to participate.
