Medaille College has been recognized by Military Advanced Education magazine as a military-friendly college for 2012.
The publication, which has published its list of military-friendly
universities and colleges since 2007, evaluates schools with the input
of military education professionals. Medaille’s listing cites its
acceptance of transfer credits, the student-veteran organization,
veterans center on campus, scholarships and Yellow Ribbon program as
evidence of the support services that it provides to service members,
veterans and their families as they transition from the military to the
classroom, and from the classroom to a career. The college has also been
recognized by Military Times and GI Jobs magazines as a military-friendly institution.
The Office of Veterans and Military Affairs
at Medaille College offers a comprehensive veterans benefits screening
and works to ensure that veteran students are maximizing the benefits
they have earned. In addition to providing assistance with veterans’
education benefits, such as the GI Bill, the New York State Veterans
Tuition Award and other veterans’ scholarship programs, the office also
provides general New York State and federal benefits assistance for
veterans and their families. Medaille also offers veterans a $10,000
VETS Scholarship above and beyond state and federal assistance.
