TWU named a top Military Friendly School


DENTON - G.I. Jobs magazine has named Texas Woman’s University one of its top Military Friendly Schools for 2010. TWU is among the top 15 percent of universities, colleges and trade schools nationwide to receive this honor from the magazine that embraces America’s veterans as students.

“TWU is proud of its commitment to serving the needs of students from all branches of the military,” said TWU Provost Dr. Kay Clayton. “TWU believes in providing veterans with the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in their careers as they transition to the private sector.”

According to G.I. Jobs, Military Friendly Schools actively recruit veterans or active military and implement military-friendly policies for their continuing education.

At TWU, military- and veteran-focused offerings include:

• Active recruitment of veteran students and the website www.twu.edu/veterans, which has admissions information specifically for veterans, including checklists; information on veterans’ benefits, financial aid and scholarships; and a list of TWU support services;
• A Veterans Affairs Center on campus to assist with the GI Bill and other veteran education benefits;
• Online and blended degree programs that offer veterans flexibility in their school and work schedule; and
• An active TWU Student Veterans Association.

G.I. Jobs magazine provides education, transition assistance and job opportunities for active military and veterans. In addition to its recognition of colleges and universities, G.I. Jobs ranks companies that are vet-friendly and promotes attributes that veterans bring to the private workplace. For more information regarding G.I. Jobs and its list of military friendly schools, visit www.militaryfriendlyschools.com.
