MFS14_Logo_200x200The 2014 Military Friendly Schools ® list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are taking extra measures to embrace America’s military service members, veterans and student spouses.

“Inclusion on the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools ® shows IBMC College’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, Vice President at Victory Media and nine-year Navy veteran. “The need for education is growing, and our mission is to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools.”

The Military Friendly Schools ® media and website features the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences.

The 1,868 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience. These schools have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility, and other services to those who served.

Now in its fifth year, the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools ® was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 10,000 schools nationwide approved for VA tuition funding. The survey results that comprise the 2014 list were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media.

Each year schools taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board (AAB) consisting of educators from schools across the country.

IBMC College currently offers the following VA Scholarships to all branches of the military and active reserves. Fill-out the form on this page to learn more or call (800) 495-2669.
