For the fifth time in the past six years, Regis College is designated a Military Friendly institution in the 2021-2022 Military Friendly® Schools list. Now in its 11th year, the prestigious list identifies institutions committed to serving the military and veteran community. Regis received a bronze award designation for the opportunities it provides to veterans and their families.
“Regis is committed to educating military and veteran community members,” said Regis College President Antoinette Hays, PhD, RN. “This incredible group of students brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the classroom that enriches the Regis community.”
Admission counselors at Regis offer one-on-one guidance and veterans receive support on applying their benefits to their education. The campus Veterans Center provides students a dedicated space to study or meet up with fellow veterans.
Regis participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which allows veterans to receive funds from the Department of Veterans Affairs for their unmet tuition and fees. The university works closely with the Veterans Administration in securing GI Bill®, Veteran Readiness and Employment, Basic Allowance for Housing, and other available supports for active-duty service members, veterans, and their families.
The Military Friendly® Schools list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources for more than 8,800 schools nationwide and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly® Schools survey from participating institutions. The survey questions, methodology, criteria and weighting were developed with the assistance of an independent research firm and an advisory council of educators and employers. Ernst and Young, a global leader in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services, independently evaluated the scoring methodology used for the Military Friendly® Schools list.
