HLGU is recognized for efforts to support veterans and military families

Hannibal-LaGrange University has once again earned the status of 2021-2022 Military Friendly® School.

“HLGU is pleased to be named a 2021-2022 Military Friendly® school that seeks to provide opportunities for the brave men and women who have served our country,” said HLGU president Dr. Anthony Allen. “This recognition is the result of our commitment to providing veterans with educational opportunities to advance their skills and marketability in the workforce. We are proud to serve those who have served us.”

Now in its 11th year, the Military Friendly® Schools list has come to set the standard for higher education institutions to provide the best opportunities for veterans and their spouses. This prestigious list provides a comprehensive guide for veterans and their families using data sources from federal agencies and proprietary survey information from participating organizations.

The Military Friendly® Schools list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources for more than 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans, and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly® Schools survey from participating institutions. This year, 766 schools earned this prestigious designation. The full list can be viewed online at militaryfriendly.com.

Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey completed by the school. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence (degree advancement or transfer) and loan default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.

Hannibal-LaGrange University is a four-year Christian university fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. The University prides itself in the traditional and nontraditional educational experience it offers in a distinctively Christian environment.
