Wilbur Wright College has been awarded the 2021-2022 Silver level Military Friendly® School designation.
The Silver Level is defined as a school scoring within 20 percent of the 10th-ranked institution in the national survey. Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey that rates how military friendly on organization is within six different categories: Academic Policies and Compliance, Admissions and Orientation, Culture and Commitment, Financial Aid Assistance, Graduation & Career Services and finally, Military Student Support and Retention. Over 1,200 schools participated in the 2021-2022 survey with around 750 schools earning the designation.
Wright College is one of three colleges in Illinois with Silver-level designation. The 2021-2022 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.
Shout out to Wright’s Veterans Services Team lead by Bryan Soske under Associate Dean Linda Huertas. Our Vets Team is staffed by veterans and skilled professionals.
“[as veterans] we understand the unique challenges our returning veterans face when making the transition from active duty to military college life. We work hard to provide one-on-one services and a welcoming environment where veterans can meet and network with other veterans, relax, or study” – Bryan Soske
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Viqtory with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey response set and government/agency public data sources, within a logic based scoring assessment. It measures an institution’s ability to meet thresholds for Student Retention, Graduation, Job Placement, Loan Repayment, Persistence (Degree Advancement or Transfer) and Loan Default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
