Providence College’s School of Continuing Education Awarded “Military Friendly School” Title from G.I. Jobs
Providence, R.I. – For the third year in a row, G.I. Jobs, the premier magazine for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has awarded Providence College’s School of Continuing Education (SCE) the designation of Military Friendly School. The 2012 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members and veterans as students.
The 1,518 institutions on this year’s list prioritize the recruitment of students with military experience. These schools are making the grade by offering scholarships and discounts, veterans’ clubs, full-time staff, military credit and other services to those who served. The 2012 list of Military Friendly Schools ® was compiled through extensive research and a data driven survey of more than 8,000 schools nationwide. Methodology, criteria and weighting for the list were developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board consisting of educators from schools across the country. A full list of board members can be found at http://militaryfriendlyschools.com/Article/advisory-board/.
PC’s SCE assists military members and their spouses with completing their bachelor’s, associate’s, and certificates. Advisors walk through every step of the college enrollment process with military members and their families.
SCE participates in the Montgomery GI Bill, Post 9/11 GI Bill, and MyCAA tuition benefit programs and offer benefits counseling for military students.
