Military Friendly 2016November 9, 2015 (Jackson, Miss.) - Belhaven University has a long history of supporting the U.S. military in their pursuit of higher education. The University was nationally recognized for its service to the U.S. military and awarded the prestigious title of 2016 Military Friendly School.

The award 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 ensuring their success on campus and after graduation.

Belhaven Adult and Graduate Studies help and support military personnel with their goals for higher education. The adult studies program makes attending Belhaven more affordable for military by providing the Yellow Ribbon Program, grants and other incentives. Belhaven military benefits not only help with the financial side of education, but also extend into other areas. Tuition includes your books, and transcripts are requested and paid for by the University.

Another reason we made the military friendly list this year was because ofBelhaven Online. Our online program fits into the busy and mobile lifestyles of military and also provides a flexible schedule for military to earn a degree.

Now in its seventh year, the Military Friendly Schools designation and list by Victory Media is the premier, trusted resource for post-military success. It provides service members transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities.
