For the sixth time in the past seven years, Regis College is designated a Military Friendly institution in the 2022-2023 Military Friendly® Schools list. Now in its twelfth 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.
“I am proud to be a part of Regis College and its commitment to our military and veteran community members.” said Nick Lanier, manager of veterans services. “We continue to work towards helping our students achieve their academic and professional goals and bring their valued experiences to our community at large.”
Among the services offered specifically for military connected learners include one-on-one guidance from admission counselors at Regis that includes support for best applying their benefits to their education. 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, Dependents' Educational Assistance, and other available supports for active-duty service members, veterans, and their families.
The Regis College Veterans Center provides students a dedicated space to study or meet up with fellow veterans. The Veterans Center also hosts programming for the campus community centering on the veteran experience. Upcoming events include a women’s veteran panel on Tuesday, March 15, at 6 p.m. in the Upper Student Center where student, faculty, and community panelists will discuss their experiences as women in the military and their perspectives on the impact of their service.
The Military Friendly® Schools list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources from more than 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans, 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. The survey is administered for free and is open to all postsecondary schools that wish to participate. Criteria for consideration can be found at militaryfriendly.com.
