Methodist University earns Military Friendly® Gold Ranking for 2024-25

By Staff Report, posted 2 weeks ago

Methodist University proudly serves those who serve at the highest level – and once again, it has the designation to prove it.

Today, March 27, the Military Friendly® ratings program officially named Methodist University a Military Friendly® university with a gold-level ranking for the 2024-25 academic year. The ranking is a recurring honor for the University, which was also listed as one of the Military Times’ “Best for Vets” schools in November.

“Receiving this recognition is important for Methodist University” said Dr. Doris Munoz, assistant provost of student retention and persistence initiatives at MU in a press release. “We have amazing services and resources in place to support all military-connected students. It is an honor for us to receive this recognition, but it’s even more of an honor to be able to provide military-connected students with the services we provide. After all they have done for us, this is the least we can do for them.”

The Military Friendly® program utilizes public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey to determine the rankings.

Located only a few miles away from Fort Liberty and Pope Army Airfield, Methodist University is uniquely positioned with a number of students, faculty, staff, and alumni who are serving or have served. For active-military student Ryan Lucas, the Military Friendly® ranking for Methodist University is well earned.

“At Methodist University, they adapt to my mission in expanding my education,” said Lucas, a U.S. Army critical care flight paramedic who is studying MU’s online Advanced Paramedicine program in a press release. “Flexibility meets dedication as they synchronize with my military schedule, ensuring I’m successful both in the field and in the classroom.”

With a Fort Liberty Office, Methodist University is dedicated to serving active-duty military, veterans, and their family members with personal assistance on general inquiries, admission, registration, academic and career advisement, and tuition assistance.

Methodist University also offers more than two dozen 100-percent online degree and certification programs – allowing active-duty military the flexibility they need to take the steps in their education or career. Online undergraduate and graduate programs include Advanced Paramedicine, Business Administration, Criminal Justice, Health Administration, Marketing, Psychology, Social Work, and more.
