Grand Valley State University has been named a Military Friendly School by Victory Media for the sixth consecutive year.

The 2015 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military service members, veterans and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

The 2015 list was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 schools nationwide. The Military Friendly Schools survey, methodology, criteria and weightings are developed with the assistance of an independent academic advisory board comprised of educators from across the country. Criteria can be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.

Grand Valley provides support and resources for service members and veterans, including in-state tuition for veterans and active military members who are stationed in Michigan. The university is a member of the Consortium of Michigan Veteran Educators, a statewide network of institutions that works to support military members and veterans.
