September 20, 2012 (Jackson) - Belhaven University was awarded the prestigious title of Military Friendly School again and is among the 15% that made the list for this year. The 2013 Military Friendly Schools list honors institutions of higher learning that are doing the most to embrace America's military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.
Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Belhaven's commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students, said Sean Collins, Director for G.I. Jobs.
Both of Belhaven's Adult Studies and Online programs help and support military personnel in their goals for higher education. The Adult studies programs make attending Belhaven more affordable for military by providing scholarships, tuition discounts, the Yellow Ribbon Program, grants and other incentives.
Belhaven's military benefits not only help with the financial side of education, but also extend into other areas. With adult studies, books are included with tuition, transcripts are requested and paid for by Belhaven, classes are flexible and meet once a week.
Belhaven's military friendly online program is another reason why Belhaven made the list this year. The online program fits into the busy and mobile lifestyles of military and also provides a flexible schedule for military to earn a degree.
