HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -
This is a news release from WCU

William Carey University has been awarded the designation of a “Top School” in the 2015 Guide to Colleges & Universities released annually by Military Advanced Education (MAE), a journal of higher learning for members of the military.

The Guide, which measures best practices in military and veteran education, will be released in the December edition of MAE and will also be available online. The Guide presents results of a questionnaire of the military-supportive policies enacted at more than 600 institutions, including private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year and two-year colleges, and seeks to arm students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to those in uniform.

Institutions of higher learning were evaluated on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, on-campus support and online support services. Each school's performance rating by category is represented by an easy-to-recognize dashboard, enabling prospective students to quickly target schools that excel in military education. Prospective students can then put those schools in context with other academic and career considerations.

“We designed this database with the military student in mind. We want to help them make informed choices, so we are giving them access to all the survey questions and answers provided by the schools, as well as explanations about critical issues like activation and deployment policies, withdrawal policies, scholarship and financial aid information and important support information,” said Kelly Fodel, editor of MAE.
