Cresson, Pa. — Mount Aloysius College has been designated a 2019 Military Friendly® School by Victory Media.  The designation reflects the college’s commitment to helping US service personnel and veterans find a clear path to academic and career success.  Military Friendly accolades are earned from the publisher of G.I. Jobs and Victory Media after reviewing survey results which measure a college’s commitment to supporting service personnel and veterans.

Mount Aloysius President John Mills noted that the commitment of the College’s faculty and a strong administrative team remains focused on the special needs of veterans and service personnel.  That focus has earned the College its ninth designation as Military Friendly. “Veterans tell us that Mount Aloysius offers them significant advantages like one-on-one faculty support, and expert assistance from both our Financial Aid and our Registrar’s Office.  This total team effort results in offering veterans, service personnel and their families dedicated hands-on support as they make the transition to college. Everyone associated with Mount Aloysius is grateful for their service to our country,” said Mills.

Veteran students and service personnel who are eligible for military benefits are helped by financial aid experts and committed faculty at Mount Aloysius.  The College waives its application fee and tuition deposit for all applying military members and veterans. Mount Aloysius also has an active Military Service Members Club on campus.

The Military Friendly® Schools designation is awarded to the top colleges and universities in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students, and to dedicate resources to ensure their success both in the classroom and after graduation.  The methodology used for making the Military Friendly® Schools list has changed the student-veteran landscape to one that is much more transparent, and has played a significant role over the past seven years in capturing and advancing best practices to support military students across the country.
