Herzing University Birmingham and Online – Military Friendly School Recognition

February 8, 2011

The Herzing University – Birmingham campus and Herzing University Online were named to the G.I. Jobs magazine 2011 list of “Military Friendly Schools” in recognition of their efforts to embrace America’s military members and veterans as students.

The two Herzing University operations were among 1,220 institutions selected from more than 7,000 schools nationwide for their efforts in recruiting and retaining military and veteran students. Institutions were evaluated according to specific criteria, including their non-financial efforts to recruit military and veterans such as certifications, programs and policies.

Both Herzing University Online and Herzing University – Birmingham are Veterans Administration approved. Both offer financial benefits, support to specific military installations, and specialized staff including full-time advisors for military-affiliated students and specialized career services personnel to assist them with preparing for and securing employment. They also allow military students to resume their studies without penalty after being called to active service.

“The Military Friendly Schools list is the gold standard in letting veterans know which schools will offer them the greatest opportunity, flexibility and overall experience,” said Derek Blumke, president of Student Veterans of America and a member of the Academic Advisory Board.
