UNF named among top military-friendly schools

The University of North Florida was named a “military-friendly school” for 2011 by G.I. Jobs magazine, the school reported Monday.

The magazine ranks UNF in the top 15 percent of all colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide that are doing the most to embrace America’s veterans as students. It is the second consecutive year UNF was ranked by the magazine.

Criteria for inclusion in the list include efforts to recruit and retain military and veteran students, results in recruiting military and veteran students, academic accreditations and polling more than 7,000 schools nationwide.

UNF received a grant this year for more than $200,000 from the Florida Braive Fund at The Community Foundation in Jacksonville, which allowed the university to establish the military and veterans resource center on campus. The center, which opens Aug. 20, assists veteran students with the often overwhelming admission, enrollment and financial aid processes, providing a supportive environment for veterans to achieve academic and life success.
