The University of Louisiana at Lafayette has been recognized as a 2016 Military Friendly® School.

The designation is awarded to the top U.S. institutions that embrace military students, and dedicate resources to ensure their success in the classroom and after they graduate, according to Victory Media. The veteran-owned business provides information for service members and their families about post-military education and career opportunities.

This is the second consecutive year that UL Lafayette has received the military-friendly designation. 

“The University continually strives to support our military students as they transition to college life,” said Dr. DeWayne Bowie, the University’s vice president for Enrollment Management.  

The military-friendly designation is based on extensive research and a data-driven survey of colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide that are approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill funding.

The survey weighs many factors such as military support on campus; tuition assistance; spouse and dependent benefits; and flexible schedule and course completion requirements.

“Post-secondary institutions earning the 2016 Military Friendly® School award have exceptionally strong programs for transitioning service members and spouses,” said Victory Media’s Daniel Nichols, a U.S. Navy Reserve veteran.
