DWU named Bronze Military Friendly School

Posted on

Dakota Wesleyan University has been named a Bronze Military Friendly® School for 2019-2020.

Military Friendly® is in its 10th year and this list provides a comprehensive guide for veterans and their families using data sources from federal agencies and proprietary survey information from participating organizations. The 2019-2020 list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can also be found online at

“This designation means a great deal to us,” said Fredel Thomas, vice president of admissions and marketing at DWU. “Dakota Wesleyan is founded in service to others and if we can make the process easier for veterans and their families to attend college, then that is a service we can be proud of.”

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.
