Chapman University’s commitment to helping its student veterans fulfill their educational goals was recognized with a 2022-2023 Military Friendly School designation by Military Friendly.
The group determines this designation using public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey by Viqtory, with input from the Military Friendly Advisory Council of independent leaders in higher education. Final ratings combine survey responses and data with the university’s ability to meet benchmarks for veteran student retention, graduation, job placement, repayment, persistence and loan default rates.
“This designation recognizes Chapman’s dedication to its veterans and their families,” said Stephen Leader, director of the university’s Veterans Resource Center. “We make student veterans’ transitions to Chapman easy and ensure they have the resources to succeed.”
Chapman’s Veterans Resource Center helps its student veterans maximize their educational benefits while providing programs to increase student retention and persistence. The program offers unlimited scholarships to assist veterans in paying tuition through the Yellow Ribbon program, which is funded by Chapman and the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
