Athens State Earns Military Friendly Designation

Dateline: February 19, 2020

Athens State University has earned a Military Friendly School designation for 2020-2021 from Military Friendly. The 625 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 completed by the school. 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.

The 2020-2021 Military Friendly Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine. The complete list can also be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.
