Brookville, N.Y. ⎯ LIU Post has again been listed among the most military-friendly in the nation by G.I. Jobs, a veteran-owned publication that serves former service members.
The 2013 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools which are doing the most to embrace America's veterans as students.
"A school's inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools shows commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students," said Sean Collins, vice president at Victory Media and director of G.I. Jobs. "As interest in education grows, we're thrilled to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools."
LIU Post has a proud and distinguished history of serving its nation's military veterans and active duty service members, and is committed to making their transition to college easier.
LIU Post maximizes veterans' past training and education while minimizing the costs of earning a college degree. In addition to flexible scheduling, LIU Post offers generous transfer and test credit policies, tuition discounts, military scholarships, special policies in times of deployment, and on-campus services dedicated specifically to veterans.
LIU Post is a proud participant in the Yellow Ribbon program, which helps veterans cover tuition costs not covered by the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill.
"Our goal is to provide support and guidance for veterans from admission through graduation and beyond," said Adam Grohman, the coordinator for veteran and military affairs at LIU Post and a boatswain's mate in the Coast Guard Reserve.
