 New England Institute of Technology Earns Distinctive 2017 Military Friendly® School Designation

East Greenwich, RI – New England Institute of Technology announced that it has
earned the 2017 Military Friendly® School designation by Victory Media, publisher of
G.I. Jobs®, Military Spouse and other related military publications. First
published in 2009, Military Friendly® Schools is the most comprehensive, powerful
resource for veterans today helping them to select the best college or university to
receive the education and training they need to pursue a civilian career.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using
both public data sources and responses from Victory Media’s proprietary survey. More
than 1,700 schools participated in the 2017 survey; 1,273 were awarded the
designation. Ratings methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by
Victory Media with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent
leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. 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
Search Assistance, Loan Repayment, Persistence and Loan Default rates for all
students and, specifically, for student veterans.

Daniel Nichols, a Navy Reserve veteran and Chief Product Officer at Victory Media,
stated, “Our ability to apply a clear, consistent standard to the majority of
colleges gives veterans a comprehensive view of which schools are striving to
provide the best opportunities and conditions for our nation’s student veterans.
Military Friendly® helps military families make the best use of the Post-9/11 GI
Bill and other federal benefits while allowing us to further our goal of assisting
them in finding success in their chosen career fields.”

Many employers contact the Career Services Office at New England Institute of
Technology seeking graduates for job opportunities. Patricia Blakemore, Director of
Career Services stated, “Our military students and graduates are highly prepared for
the job market through the education they receive at New England Tech coupled with
their military training. These individuals are one of the most sought after group
of candidates by prospective employers.”
