ACU selected as a top school for military students in 2015 education guide

Posted December 09, 2014

Military Advanced Education (MAE) has awarded Abilene Christian University the designation of a Top School in its 2015 MAE Guide to Colleges & Universities, measuring best practices in military and veteran education. The Guide has just been released in the latest issue of MAE, and is available online at http://www.mae-kmi.com.

The Guide presents results of a questionnaire of the military-supportive policies enacted at more than 600 institutions including private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year, and two-year colleges. From community colleges to state universities, online universities and nationally known centers of higher learning, MAE’s 2015 Guide to Colleges & Universities arms students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to our men and women in uniform.

Institutions were evaluated on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, on-campus support and online support services. Each school’s performance rating by category is represented by a dashboard that allows prospective students to quickly target schools that follow best practices in military education, and then put these in context with other academic or career considerations.

“We used strict criteria to individually evaluate the submissions of respondents, and we had a record number of schools participating this year,” says Kelly Fodel, MAE’s editor. “We want to help military students make informed choices, so we are giving them access to all the survey questions and answers provided by the schools, as well as explanations about critical issues like activation and deployment policies, withdrawal policies, scholarship and financial aid information and important support information.”
