For the second year in a row, Concordia University has earned a Military Friendly School designation, awarded by Vicqtory Media.


In its 10th year, the Military Friendly School list is a standard for which higher education institutions provide the best opportunities for veterans and their spouses. This prestigious list provides a comprehensive guide for veterans and their families using data sources from federal agencies.

Institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and survey responses. This year, 766 schools earned the designation.

The 2019-20 Military Friendly Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.

Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Viqtory with input from the Military Friendly Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for Student Retention, Graduation, Job Placement, Loan Repayment, Persistence (Degree Advancement or Transfer) and Loan Default Rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
