Military Friendly School
Published: December 05 2016

Arkansas State University–Beebe has received the 2017 Military Friendly® School designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs®, STEM Jobs SM, and Military Spouse.  

Each year, the list of Military Friendly® Schools is provided to service members and their families, helping them select the best college, university, or trade school to receive the education and training needed to pursue a civilian career. 

“At ASU-Beebe, we continually strive to provide a helpful atmosphere for our veterans and their families as they transition into college life,” said Veterans Administration Representative Michele Mailhiot. 

ASU-Beebe has consecutively been designated as a Military Friendly School, and was among 1,273 higher education institutions nationwide to receive the 2017 Military Friendly® School ranking. Ratings methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Victory Media 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. 

ASU-Beebe at the Little Rock Air Force Base has been offering educational opportunities to military members and their families, as well as the area communities, since 1965. ASU-Beebe offers services and benefits to military members to attend classes at any campus location. Additionally, enrollment in the ASU-Beebe ROTC program is available for fall or spring semesters.  

Founded in 2001, Victory Media is a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) that connects the military community to civilian employment, educational and entrepreneurial opportunities through its G.I. Jobs®, Military Spouse, Vetrepreneur ®, STEM Jobs SM and Military Friendly ® brands. To see the entire Military Friendly® Schools list, view the website at http://militaryfriendly.com/schools/.
