Louisville, KY – The University of Louisville (UofL) has been recognized by G.I. Jobs as a Military Friendly School for the fifth consecutive year. G.I. Jobs is an extensive web resources and monthly magazine designed to help veterans make the transition from military service to the civilian workforce.

The Military Friendly Schools list acknowledges top colleges, universities and trade schools for their success in providing quality services, creating smooth processes and making education affordable for active duty and veterans who want to start, advance or complete their college education.

The survey distributed by G.I. Jobs to students who serve or have served in the military is designed to gather information about students’ learning experience, services and affordability at their college. More than 8,000 schools have participated in the survey nationwide.

Throughout all services and processes dedicated to enrolling service members and veterans, the University of Louisville has consistently demonstrated its commitment to provide the best learning environment and college experience possible. The office of Military and Veteran Student Services at UofL is dedicated to smooth the transition from military life to student life by devoting individualized support to veteran students and their families in providing a broad range of services, coordinating with VA, university departments, and other community organizations.

Our staff assists with identifying federal and state education benefit options; advocating military transfer credit; withdrawals/re-admit due to deployments or call to Active Duty status; or connecting veteran students with campus resources, veteran service providers, and other agencies encouraging academic success at the University of Louisville.

“To be honored by G.I. Jobs as one of the military friendly schools, year after year, is a great testament to the collectively devoted efforts to ensure that our students who have served our country get the best education for the career they want at an affordable cost.” said Laura Dorman, marketing manager for online learning, at UofL. “Our online community of learners is much enhanced as a result of the experience, talent and skills that military students bring to the classroom and share with our civilian students. Their leadership and motivation continuously raise the bar for all learners.”

Our military students truly enjoy the availability of online education at UofL, because they can attend online classes and online programs from any location in the world. Whether pursuing a career in criminal justice, nursing, organizational leadership, HR or engineering, they appreciate the innovative learning methods, schedule flexibility, career-relevant curriculum and the extensive expertise of the faculty leading the learning journey.
We know how much pride our military students take in serving our country, and we are tremendously proud to serve them in return.
