Colorado Technical University Receives Military Honor For Fifth Year In A Row
Career College Central summary:
Colorado Technical University (CTU) was recognized as a Military Friendly School by Victory Media (formerly known as G.I. Jobs Magazine) for the fifth time.
About one-third of CTU's student population consists of active military, reservists, National Guard, veterans and their spouses. To best serve this population, CTU’s Department of Military Education has a team of specially trained advisors who are knowledgeable in areas that affect military students, such as voluntary education procedures, education benefits, military training transfer credit, and CTU military friendly policies regarding military deployment while in school.
In addition to being a Post 9/11 G.I. Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program participant, CTU annually awards 25 Wounded Warrior Scholarships and 25 Wounded Warrior Spouse Scholarships to deserving recipients. The scholarship program was created in 2008, and it offers educational assistance to wounded service members and wounded veterans as they recover from their injuries and for their spouses as they prepare for new career opportunities. The 2014 scholarship recipients will be named in November.
The 2014 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans and spouses as students. The list was compiled from a survey of more than 10,000 schools nationwide approved for VA tuition funding. Schools were surveyed on the services and accommodations available to military students, such as providing special policies addressing the unique concerns of service members, offering programs especially in demand by military students, and having distance learning options.
