WDT named a Military Friendly School for fifth straight year
Western Dakota Tech announced today that it has been designated a 2015 Military Friendly School for the fifth consecutive year.
The Military Friendly Schools designation is awarded to the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students and dedicate resources to ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation. The methodology used for making the Military Friendly Schools list has changed the student veteran landscape to one much more transparent, and has played a significant role over the past six years in capturing and advancing best practices to support military students across the country.
WDT has services in place for the 111 enrolled students who classify as active or former service members. "WDT is dedicated to the success of our student veterans, and we take pride in the services we offer. It's an honor to make this list for the fifth year in a row," said Curt Lauinger, WDT's Career Services Coordinator.
The survey captures more than 50 leading practices in supporting military students and is available free of charge to the more than 8,000 schools approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill funding. As in past years, the 2015 Military Friendly Schools results were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology developed by Victory Media with input by its independent Academic Advisory Board.
