MSU once again makes USVM’s top Veteran-Friendly schools list

Morehead State University serves those who served our nation through military service by offering them a welcoming campus environment and quality academic programs opportunities. U.S. Veterans Magazine (USVM) has consistently recognized these qualities about the University. 

MSU has once again made USVM’s Best of the Best Top Veteran-Friendly school rankings for 2019. 

“We are pleased to be recognized as the campus community continues to build on MSU’s tradition of providing the help veterans and their families need to transition from soldier to student and ultimately to college graduate,” said David Litteral, MSU’s director of military initiatives. “It is equally important that we recognize the military-friendly community of Morehead and the surrounding counties. It's a great team-effort.” 

USVM polled hundreds of Fortune 1,000 companies for the Best of the Best evaluations. The annual review is an evaluation of the nation’s employers, initiatives, government agencies and educational institutions that serves as a valuable resource for job-seekers, business owners, students, consumers, senior management, business associations, employment agencies and consumer groups. 

MSU also has been previously recognized as a military/veteran-friendly university by GI Jobs magazine, Viqtory Media, the Military Times, U.S.News and World Report and Veterans National Honor Society. 

MSU is home to the Lt. Col. Alan R. Baldwin Veterans Center. The center opened in 2012 and provides a place for student veterans to study, relax and reconnect with their fellow student veterans. It also assists prospective military, current military and student-veterans by providing counseling and direction on all educational benefits, enrollment and registration assistance, counseling resources and referrals, and academic and career assistance. 

MSU assists military and veteran students through the following benefits: 

  • Application fee waived. 
  • Priority registration. 
  • Credit for military training and service. 
  • No academic penalty upon documented deployment. 
  • Participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program. 
  • Student Veteran Association.
