Creighton Makes 2014 Military Friendly Schools List

Creighton University has been named to the Military Friendly School's list for 2014. The Military Friendly SchoolsŪ 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 and ensure their success on campus.

The criteria focuses on graduation rates, academic accreditations and post-educational employment figures as opposed to basing the designation on just the number of enrolled military students.

As part of the University's unwavering commitment to the men and women who have served the nation, Creighton supports an unlimited number of Yellow Ribbon awards for qualified veterans and their eligible dependents in the undergraduate colleges and graduate school and offers 100 percent undergraduate and graduate tuition and fees, though some exceptions will apply.
Retired Lt. Col Mark Turner, military and veteran liaison coordinates University support and services to veterans, service members and dependents.

"The university's Yellow Ribbon commitment clearly demonstrates a resolute dedication to those who served and continue to serve in our nation?s military," said Turner. "Our investment in veterans has never been stronger and our Yellow Ribbon Program makes a Creighton education both affordable and attainable for veterans, service members and dependents."

Each year, the Military Friendly School's list is assembled in order to help military veterans and their families become more informed about making the right college decision. The goal is to help veterans understand their options when it comes to their education and higher learning.

The list and program has been in place since before the post 9/11 GI bill went into effect. Every September, the list is published in "The Guide to Military Friendly Schools."

Creighton University is a Jesuit, Catholic university bridging health, law, business and the arts and sciences for a more just world.
