Judson Named Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs Magazine
(Elgin, IL - September 23, 2013) Judson University has been named a Military Friendly School® for 2014 according to G.I. Jobs Magazine. G.I. Jobs Magazine surveyed more than 12,000 schools, and ranked Judson among the top 15 percent of all colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide.
The survey examined five areas of concern for veterans and military personnel seeking to complete their degrees, including financial benefits, schedule flexibility, veteran support, degrees offered, and accreditation levels. Financially, Judson offers credits for military service and training, in-state tuition for non-residents, and provides merits and scholarships based on the College Level Examination Program.
"I chose Judson because the sense of community and acceptance was unparalleled in comparison to any campus I've visited as a prospecting student," says Judson student Robert Trenkler, of Woodstock, Ill. Trenkler served in the United States Air Force as an active duty member for four years, and now serves in the Air Force Reserves. He's earning his degree from Judson in Sociology with a concentration in Criminal Justice.
"The faculty was extremely helpful in processing my application and provided the specific attention I needed to start classes on time," Trenkler explains. "Judson accepted 12 of my military credits as part of my prior education experience, which contributed to launching me into sophomore status as a new transfer student."
Military students can also enjoy a flexible course schedule through online and evening classes for those seeking degrees in undergraduate, graduate and certification programs.
