NAU Selected As A Top School By Military Advanced Education

Flagstaff, AZ: Military Advanced Education (MAE) has awarded Northern Arizona University (NAU) the designation of a Top School in its 2015 MAE Guide to Colleges & Universities, measuring best practices in military and veteran education. The Guide was released in the December issue of MAE

The Guide presents the results of a questionnaire of the military-supportive policies enacted at more than 600 institutions including private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year, and two-year colleges. From community colleges to state universities, online universities and nationally known centers of higher learning, MAE’s 2015 Guide to Colleges & Universities arms students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to our men and women in uniform.

This year, institutes were evaluated on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, on-campus support and online support services. Each school’s performance rating by category is represented in an easy-to-read dashboard. This enables prospective students to quickly target the schools, like NAU, that follow best practices in military education, and then put these in context with other academic or career considerations.

“We believe the Guide serves as an invaluable tool for both education services officers and transition officers when advising servicemembers about their educational opportunities,” said Kelly Fodel, MAE’s editor. “We used strict criteria to individually evaluate the submissions of respondents, and we had a record number of schools participating this year.”

This is the third time this year that NAU has been recognized for its commitment to its military and veteran students. NAU was ranked on Military Times’ Best For Vets: Colleges 2015 list and by US News & World Report as a provider of Best Online Bachelor’s Programs For Veterans.
