Posted on Wednesday, March 09, 2022


The University of Northwestern Ohio is proud to announce today that it has been named a Gold-level Military Friendly® School in the Private University not offering Doctorate category for the 2022-2023 academic year. This is the thirteenth consecutive year that the University of Northwestern Ohio has received a Military Friendly® designation. 

“Being recognized not only as Military Friendly®, but as a Gold-Level private university for the 5th year in a row, is proof alone that we have policies and procedures in place to make the dream of obtaining a college education a reality for all of the men and women who serve our country,” said Dr. Jeffrey A. Jarvis, UNOH President.

The UNOH Military Relations Department is in place to provide a one-stop-shop to all Active Duty Military, National Guard, Reservists, and Veterans when it comes to enrolling at UNOH.  The office also assists with scheduling, financial aid, academic counseling, and customer service. The University has always been proud to be a strong supporter of all servicemen and women.

Institutions earning the Military Friendly​® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. This year more than 1,800 schools participated with 665 earning special awards for going above the standard. The 2022-2023 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May and October issues of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at​.

“Military Friendly® is committed to transparency and providing consistent data-driven standards in our designation process. Our standards provide a benchmark that promotes positive outcomes and support services that better the educational landscape and provide opportunity for the Military Community,” said Kayla Lopez, National Director of Military Partnerships with Military Friendly®. “This creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages colleges to evolve and invest in their programs consistently. Schools who achieve awards designation show true commitment in their efforts, going over and above that standard.”

Award thresholds were set by the leading educational institution in each category below:

  • Graduate School
  • Large Community College
  • Large Public College
  • Non-Traditional Institutions
  • Online/Vocational Institutions
  • Private, not offering Doctorate

Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Viqtory with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for Student Retention, Graduation, Job Placement, Loan Repayment, Persistence (Degree Advancement or Transfer) and Loan Default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
