Written by on March 8, 2023

The University of Northwestern Ohio is proud to announce today that it has been named a Top Ten, Gold-level Military Friendly® School in the Private University not offering Doctorate category for the 2023-2024 academic year by VIQTORY, a veteran-owned company that assesses institutions based on their commitment to supporting military personnel, veterans, and their families. This is the fourteenth consecutive year that the University of Northwestern Ohio has received a Military Friendly® designation.

“We are honored to be recognized as a Top Ten Gold Level Military Friendly School for 2023-2024 academic year, ranking #5 overall in our category,” said Dr. Jeffrey A. Jarvis, UNOH President. “We are committed to supporting the men and women who have served our country, and we will continue to do everything in our power to provide the resources and support they need to make the dream of completing a college education a reality.”

This designation reflects the ongoing commitment of the UNOH Military Relations Department to provide exceptional support to military students, including Active-Duty, National Guard, Reservists, and veterans. The university offers a range of programs and services to help these students succeed academically and professionally, including:

• Dedicated advisors who specialize in working with military students and provide support and guidance throughout their academic journey
• Flexible scheduling and online course options to accommodate the unique needs of military students

The Military Friendly® Schools designation is awarded based on an institution’s ability to meet several criteria, including academic policies and compliance, admissions and orientation, culture and commitment, financial aid and assistance, graduation and career outcomes, and military student support and retention. More than 1,850 schools participated in the 2023-2024 survey, with 530 schools earning award level designations in Top Ten, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. The 2023-2024 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at:
