The University of Wisconsin-Platteville, and its Distance Learning Center, have been designated a Military Friendly School® for the third year in a row by G.I. Jobs Magazine, a journal covering higher education for the 8 million military members and veterans seeking a school. The list includes the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that do the most for America’s veterans when they transition to students.

“We’re honored to receive the distinction and be able to provide a valuable service to the nation's most deserving heroes,” said Karen Adams, director of corporate marketing for the Distance Learning Center. “They have unique educational challenges and it’s important that universities help them overcome those obstacles.”

Criteria included academic strength, on-campus and online advice, support provided to veterans and their families, and the effectiveness of a school's distance learning programs. The final list, which included UW-Platteville, was compiled from a survey of more than 8,000 schools.
