GREAT FALLS – Great Falls College MSU has earned the 2017-2018 Military Friendly School designation.

The designation comes from Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs, STEM Jobs, and Military Spouse. Victory Media recognizes colleges and universities with leading programs for veterans and military spouses.

"Great Falls College MSU works hard to make sure all our veterans and military spouses are successful," said Kevin Lyons, Veterans Success Coach. "We are happy to have this recognition from the Military Friendly schools website and will continue to make our campus a supportive environment for veterans, active duty members and their families."

Military students, including spouses and dependents, make up 14 percent of the student body at Great Falls College MSU.

According to Victory Media, institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. For the first time, student survey data was taken into consideration for the designation. More than 1,300 schools participated in the 2017-2018 survey with 849 earning the designation.

Final ratings for the designation were determined by a school's student retention, graduation rates, job placement, loan repayment, and loan default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.

"As a college in a community with two military bases, it is an honor to receive this designation," said Dr. Susan Wolff, CEO/Dean of Great Falls College MSU. "The recognition validates the passion given and work done by our faculty, staff and administration for students who are active duty, retired and their spouses."
