Following Oregon Tech’s receipt of the Military Times 2021 Best for Vets: Colleges acknowledgment last week, the university has been honored with another recognition, this time as a 2021-2022 Military Friendly® School.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Over 1,200 schools participated in the 2021-2022 survey with 747 earning the designation.
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. We measure the 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.
As an institution founded 74 years ago to help WWII veterans transition to civilian life successfully through technical careers, Oregon Tech remains dedicated to supporting active military personnel and veterans of today with an educational pathway that will prepare them for a prosperous future.
The 2021-2022 Military Friendly® Schools list was published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at www.militaryfriendly.com/oregon-institute-of-technology/.
