Hocking College was awarded the Military Friendly Schools® title from Victory Media Inc. for the third year in a row. The 2013 Military Friendly Schools® list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are embracing America's military service members and veterans as students.

Schools were considered that offer scholarships and discounts, veterans' clubs, full-time staff, military credit and other services to those who served. The list was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 schools nationwide. Methodology, criteria and weighting for the list were developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board consisting of educators from schools across the country. Each year, schools taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year.

Specifically, Hocking College prioritizes the recruitment of students with military experience and is one of the top schools for providing the most academic credit for military and civilian credit. Scholarships and tuition discounts are also available to military students and veterans while all military students and dependents are offered in-state tuition without residency requirements. Hocking also allows military students called to active duty to return to school without any penalty.

The Military Friendly Schools® website, found at, features the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences. The 1,739 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year's list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience.
