Pittsburgh, Pa. - Carlow University
has been named to Viqtory's 2019-2020 list of Military Friendly®
schools. This is the sixth consecutive year Carlow has been
designated a Military Friendly® school.
Viqtory, a veteran-owned small business that connects the
military community with information on jobs, education, and
entrepreneurial activities, evaluates institutions using both
public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey
completed by each school. This year 766 schools across the
nation earned the Military Friendly® designation.
The 2019-2020 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published
in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine. The list can also 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.
