CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa has been selected as a Military Friendly University in Military Advanced Education's (MAE) 2014 Guide to Military Friendly Colleges & Universities.

From community colleges to state universities, online universities and nationally known centers of higher learning, MAE's 2014 Guide to Military Friendly Colleges & Universities provides potential students with information about institutions that go out of their way to implement military friendly policies in support of our men and women in uniform.

Among the attributes considered in evaluating this year's institutions for inclusion in the guide are flexibility of online learning options, extent of transfer credits accepted by degree level, on-campus ROTC, Servicemember Opportunity Colleges (SOC) participation, on-campus active duty/veteran assistance, the support provided to the families of service members, faculty trained in veteran reintegration issues, presence on military installations, and full-time counselors trained in veteran-specific mental health concerns.

"We are honored with this recognition," said Julia Heuer, coordinator of military and veteran student services. "With continual incorporation of military-affiliated students' candid input and support from the university, we will meet our students' expectations of service and stay on the forefront of being a military friendly campus."
