UMT Named A "Military-Friendly University" by Military Advanced Education for the 4th Consecutive Year

ARLINGTON, Virginia, December 23, 2013

'UMT is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the designation of a “Top Military-Friendly University” by the Military Advanced Education (MAE) magazine for the 4th consecutive year. UMT is listed in the MAE’s 2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges and Universities, published in December 2013.

The publication thanked schools on the list for “helping us serve those who serve our country.”

“UMT is proud to be recognized once again by Military Advanced Education for our commitment to providing the highest quality online educational programs to the men and women who serve our country.” said Dr. J. Davidson Frame, UMT Academic Dean. “UMT was conceived as a distance-learning university that would make it easier, faster and less expensive for people to reach their education and life goals, and it executes that mission with passion and perseverance every day.”

Among the attributes considered in evaluating this year’s colleges and universities for inclusion in the MAE’s guide are the flexibility of online learning options, extent of transfer credits accepted by degree level, on-campus ROTC, Servicemember Opportunity Colleges (SOC) participation, on-campus active duty/veteran assistance, the support provided to the families of servicemembers, faculty trained in veteran reintegration issues, presence on military installations, and full-time counselors trained in veteran-specific mental health concerns, and many more.

“Our staff used strict criteria to evaluate the submissions of the respondents, and we had a record number of schools participating this year. We believe the Guide serves as an invaluable tool for both education services officers and transition officers when advising servicemembers about their educational opportunities,” said Kelly Fodel, MAE’s editor.
