PIA earns Gold Military Friendly Designationkbaker
Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics has announced that it has earned Gold Award status, a designation awarded to schools that score within the top 20% of the nation’s Top Military Friendly Schools.
The Military Friendly® Schools list, compiled by Victory Media, provides a comprehensive guide for veterans and their families to assist them in their search for higher education institutions.
Victory Media’s Chief Product Officer Daniel Nichols stated, “Our ability to apply a clear, consistent standard to colleges creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages colleges to invest in programs to provide educational outcomes that are better for veterans.” Final ratings of institutions were determined by combining institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for Student Retention, Graduation, Job Placement, Loan Repayment, Persistence, and Loan Default rates.
“It is both our honor and our obligation to help American soldiers acquire career-relevant skills and, in some cases, transition to civilian life. We are proud of our military friendly exclusively because it reflects our dedication to those who have served us in the defense of democracy and the freedoms we enjoy,” said Suzanne Markle, President and CEO of Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics.
PIA is proud to provide educational opportunities for the military community, and thanks all active duty and veteran military members for their service.
