For the third consecutive year, The University of Toledo has been named a Top Military-Friendly University by Military Advanced Education & Transition.

“A record number of schools responded to our extensive survey, and [Military Advanced Education & Transition] staff evaluated each submission by our strict criteria,” said Kelly Fodel, editor of the magazine. “Schools are evaluated by their achievement in military culture, financial aid, flexibility, general support services, on-campus support and online support services.”

“Being named a Top Military-Friendly University is a testament to the commitment of the University’s administration, staff and faculty,” said Navy Reserve Lt. Haraz N. Ghanbari, UT director of military and veteran affairs. “Our students bring a wealth of experience to the classroom, and we remain grateful for their service to our nation.”

The Military Service Center is a one-stop shop for those eligible to receive Department of Defense or Department of Veteran Affairs educational benefits. Located in Rocket Hall, the center works closely with Adult, Transfer and Military Admission, Online Admission, and the various support and academic offices throughout the University.

“The support for our current service members, veterans and their families extends beyond the sidewalks of the University,” Ghanbari said. “The relationships we have with various organizations in the community are invaluable. We are extremely thankful for the many individuals and companies who continue to invest in the future of our students.”
