AMES, Iowa -- The journal Military Advanced Education has named Iowa State University a military-friendly university. Iowa State is one of 293 institutions included in the publication's "Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges and Universities," published today Monday, Dec. 19.
Iowa State's selection was based on its dedicated veteran services staff that certifies enrollment for education benefits, and provides referrals for tutorial assistance, counseling, finance and academics. Iowa State was also cited for participation in GoArmyEd and MyCAA, membership in the Student Veterans of America, and for being a Yellow Ribbon School (part of the GI Education Enhancement Program of the Post-911 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008).
Iowa State was one of four Iowa institutions listed in the guide. The others are Ashford University, Clinton; University of Iowa, Iowa City; and Upper Iowa University, Fayette.
Military Advanced Education is a magazine for servicemembers seeking to take advantage of the military education benefit.
