UIW Named Among Top Military Friendly Online Colleges

March 14, 2018

University of the Incarnate Word is proud to announce its #9 ranking on the list of the 2018 Top Military-Friendly Online Colleges, as well as the 2018 Top Yellow Ribbon Online Schools by SR Education Group, an online education research publisher.

UIW is among 60 online colleges meeting the SR Education Group's 2018 criteria for military-friendly online schools in the United States. These accredited schools provide strong military communities and support networks for their online students as well as exceptional financial assistance and flexibility. UIW is also listed among the top 15 online schools that support an unlimited number of students and offer unlimited financial contributions through the Yellow Ribbon Program. The Yellow Ribbon Program allows colleges and universities to choose to support a certain number of veterans with funds that go towards tuition, which the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs then agrees to match.

“The University of the Incarnate Word is honored to be recognized for our excellence in online education by College Choice. With services and degree programs for the busy adult learner, the University is a proud member of the Yellow Ribbon program supporting our active duty military servicemembers and a vibrant Veteran community,” said Dr. Cyndi Wilson Porter, vice president, Extended Academic Programs.

The SR Education Group used government data from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs GI Bill® Comparison Tool to evaluate schools listed in their rankings. Over 500 schools were considered, and 60 made the 2018 Top Military-Friendly Online Schools. Each school on the list earned a military-friendly score of at least 65 points out of a possible 100.
