Bellevue University Tops U.S. News Rankings

Bellevue University Among Nation’s Top Military Friendly Schools Five Years Running

For the fifth consecutive year, Bellevue University has been named a top military friendly school by Victory Media, a premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life. The 2014 Military Friendly Schools® list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

“Since our founding in 1965, we have helped thousands of military students worldwide earn quality degrees that helped them reach their personal and professional goals,” said Dr. Mary B. Hawkins, president of Bellevue University. “We are especially proud of this designation as it reflects our ongoing commitment to military students currently serving and our veterans.”

“Inclusion on the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools® shows Bellevue University’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, Vice President at Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran. “The need for education is growing and our mission is to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools.”

Now in its fifth year, the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools ® was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 10,000 schools nationwide approved for VA tuition funding. The survey results that comprise the 2014 list were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media. Each year schools taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board (AAB) consisting of educators from schools across the country.

Earlier this year Bellevue University was ranked in the top five nationally in the inaugural U.S. News Best Online Programs for Veterans Ranking. The ranking was fueled by multiple strengths including faculty credentials, support provided to military students, high graduation rates and low debt loads.

In addition to an unprecedented suite of Veteran services, the University also works with corporate partners to identify how Veterans transitioning to civilian life can help fill gaps in corporate knowledge and skills.
