Northwestern named Military Friendly School

October 8, 2012

Northwestern Oklahoma State University has been named to the 2013 Military Friendly Schools list. The list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

Northwestern currently has about 70 students with past or current military service.

“We are proud to be recognized for our commitment to help veterans and active duty service personnel move forward toward a college degree,” said Dr. Janet Cunningham, university president.

Northwestern provides advisers on staff who can assist veterans with career placement. Because Northwestern’s tuition and fee rates are among the lowest in the region, the institution also can provide the best financial environment for military students through scholarships.

When military students are called to active duty, they are able to return without a penalty. In addition, Northwestern offers in-state tuition without residency requirements for active-duty and military dependent students.
