schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America's
military service members, veterans and spouses as students and ensure
their success on campus.
"Inclusion on the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools� shows Huntington University's commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students," said Sean Collins, vice president at Victory Media and a nine-year U.S. 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, www.militaryfriendlyschools.com, feature the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences.

This is the second year that HU has been named a military friendly school.
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.
To say thank you to active-duty military personnel, HU's adult programs has lowered the cost of its degree programs $250 per credit hour for all 100 and 200-level courses for active-duty military personnel and their dependents. To learn more, visit www.huntington.edu/military-students.
