FHSU receives military recognition from publication

Military Advanced Education & Transition Top Colleges & Universities 2016

12/22/15 rg
HAYS, Kan. -- "Military Advanced Education and Transition" has awarded Fort Hays State University the designation of a top school in its 2016 MAE&T Guide to Colleges and Universities, measuring best practices in military and veteran education. The guide was released this month and is available online at www.mae-kmi.com.

The guide presents results of a questionnaire of the military-supportive policies enacted at more than 600 institutions including private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year and two-year colleges. From community colleges to state universities, online universities and nationally known centers of higher learning, MAE&T's 2016 Guide to Colleges & Universities arms students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to the men and women in uniform.

Now in its ninth year publishing the guide, MAE&T was the first publication to launch a reference tool of this type. This year, institutions were evaluated on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, general support, on-campus support and online support services.

Not only is the 2016 guide presented in the December issue of "Military Advanced Education and Transition," but also published in a searchable database online. Students will have access to all the survey questions and answers provided by the schools, as well as explanations about critical issues like activation and deployment policies, withdrawal policies, scholarship and financial aid information and important support information.
