Globe University & Minnesota School of Business have been named a 2016 Military Friendly® School. Victory Media’s Military Friendly® ratings recognize colleges and companies with leading programs for veterans, members of the Armed Forces leaving military service and military spouses. Schools are selected based on their campus support for student veterans, graduation and employment outcomes, retention programs for veterans, and policies on National Guard and Reserve service.
“Those earning the 2016 Military Friendly® designation demonstrate a strong connection between classroom learning and career development. They’re moving the needle beyond ‘why recruit military’ to translating military competencies into training and positive employment after graduation,” says Daniel Nichols, Chief Product Officer of Victory Media and Navy Reserve veteran.
Military Times announced its 2014 Best for Vets College Rankings and Globe University’s affiliate school, Minnesota School of Business, is No. 9 in the nation!
The organization comprising Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times and Marine Corps Times placed a new emphasis on academic rigor this year when conducting and scoring the fourth annual Best for Vets: Colleges survey, a highly respected 150-question analysis of a school’s complete offerings for veterans.
Best for Vets provides service men and women a gauge by which to judge whether a school or degree program will truly benefit them. The rankings factored in service member enrollment, percentage of tuition covered by the GI Bill®, and availability of specific programs to help service members.
Yellow Ribbon Program
Globe University has been a participating member of the Yellow Ribbon program since 2010. Globe University has voluntarily entered into an agreement with the VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the VA cap for private colleges.
This agreement is part of the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) and is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. Only individuals entitled to the maximum benefit rate (based on service requirements) may receive this funding.
With the Post-9/11 GI Bill®, you may have tuition and fees that exceed that cap amount. For eligible students, Globe University will pay 50 percent of the amount above the maximum allowed by the Post 9/11 GI Bill® and the VA will pay the remaining 50 percent.
To confirm your eligibility and apply for the Yellow Ribbon Program contact the Financial Aid Office at your campus.
