9/26/14

DENTON— Texas Woman’s University has been recognized as a Military Friendly® School for the sixth consecutive year. The 2015 Military Friendly® Schools list recognizes the top 15 percent of universities, colleges and trade schools nationwide that are doing the most to embrace American’s military service members and veterans as students.

According to Victory Media, a Service-Disabled, Veteran-Owned Business serving the military community since 2001, criteria for Military Friendly® Schools include military support on campus, academic credibility, percent of military students, academic credit for military service, flexibility for military students, and more.

Earlier this year, TWU unveiled its new Veteran Students’ Center located on the first floor of Jones Hall. The study and gathering space offers TWU student veterans a place where they can connect with others who have served and those who want to support them.

Other military- and veteran-focused offerings at TWU 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;
• Online and blended degree programs that offer veterans flexibility in their school and work schedule; and
• An active TWU Student Veterans Association.
