For the second year in a row, Medaille College has been designated as a Military Friendly School in a 2012 list published by G.I. Jobs as a service to veterans and service members. This list the list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that do the most to embrace America’s veterans as students.
This designation complements Medaille’s recognition as a Veterans-Friendly Educational Institution by the Erie County Veterans Service Agency, as well as its participation in the Department of Veterans Affairs GI Bill Yellow Ribbon Program. With the passage of the Post-9/11 GI Bill in 2009, billions of dollars in tuition funding are available to veterans looking to return to the classroom for professional advancement, or to begin a new career.
Medaille, like other schools on the Military Friendly Schools list, offers additional benefits to veterans such as on-campus veterans programs and credit for service. The College also provides scholarship opportunities of up to $10,000 for qualified students through its Veterans Education Tuition Scholarship.
Currently, the College has over 100 veterans and dependents enrolled in undergraduate, graduate and online programs. Degrees in homeland security, psychology and mental health counseling are among the more popular options for veterans who are transitioning from combat-to-classroom.
The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
