SNHU Named a Military Friendly School

In the Post-9/11 GI Bil® era, the list offers military personnel guidance on which schools
are doing the most to embrace them as students.

Southern New Hampshire University has been listed as a G.I. Jobs Military Friendly School since 2009. The list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military personnel as students.

Schools on the list range from state universities and private colleges to community colleges and trade schools. The common bond is their shared priority of recruiting students with military experience.

“This is a significant award for the institution. We have a very dedicated team that takes a great deal of pride in the outstanding work it does for our military students,” says Christine Javery, director of military initiatives at Southern New Hampshire University. “We know our work plays an important role in the lives of our students whether they are active duty, retired, or a military spouse.”

The tens of billions of dollars in tuition money, now available with the recent passage of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, has intensified an already strong desire by colleges to court veterans into their classrooms.

Schools on the Military Friendly Schools list also offer additional benefits to student veterans such as on-campus veterans programs, credit for service, military spouse programs and more.

The list was compiled through exhaustive research starting last May during which G.I. Jobs polled more than 7,000 schools nationwide. Methodology, criteria and weighting for the list were developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Committee (AAC) consisting of educators and administrators from Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Toledo, Duquesne University, Coastline Community College and Lincoln Technical Institute.

Criteria for making the Military Friendly Schools list included efforts to recruit and retain military and veteran students, results in recruiting military and veteran students and academic accreditations.


G.I. Jobs ( is published by Victory Media, a veteran-owned business

headquartered in Pittsburgh, Penn., the company also publishes The Guide to Military Friendly Schools, Military Spouse and Vetrepreneur magazines and annually rates the nation’s “MilitaryFriendly Employers,” “Military Spouse Friendly Employers” and “Best Corporations for Veteran-Owned Businesses.”
