Victory Media, creator of the family of Military Friendly® employment, entrepreneurship and education resources for veterans and their families, announced its list of 2018 Military Friendly® Schools. Hope International University again has been recognized as a “Military Friendly” school for exhibiting leading practices in recruiting and supporting post-military students. As a 2018 designee, HIU continues to be featured on MilitaryFriendly.com, a site that provides service members and their families with helpful information for making decisions about civilian careers and education opportunities.

Additionally, HIU was also named a “TOP SCHOOL” in the 2018 Military Advanced Education &Training Guide to Colleges & Universities research study. The MAET guide serves as a comprehensive research tool for service members, education services officers and transition officers.

HIU offers a number of military payment options and is dedicated to providing flexible and affordable degree options to meet the needs of active military and veterans. Hope also offer credit for military training and is a participant in the Yellow Ribbon Program. By offering these and other benefits to America’s service members and their families, HIU plays an important role in easing the transition back into civilian life for veterans and are giving back to the individuals who have themselves made sacrifices for our nation.

Military Friendly® -- the ratings division of Victory Media -- is the leading, time-tested, trademarked standard that measures an organization’s level of commitment and success in creating opportunities and positive outcomes for members of the military community. Military Friendly®-designated organizations are in good federal standing and have met or exceeded benchmarks for recruitment, retention, advancement, support, and job placement of veterans.

The methodology behind this recognition begins with a standard definition of what it means for an employer or institution to be Military Friendly®. Then each institution’s military recruiting program is measured in three primary areas:

  • Engages the prospective military student or employee in a recruiting environment.
  • Educates the military student or employee once he or she is part of the company or school.
  • Employs the military student or employee in meaningful employment.
