Rowan College South Jersey (RCSJ) is proud to be a recipient of VIQTORY's G.I. Jobs Magazine 2021-2022 Military Friendly® School designation.
VIQTORY, a veteran-owned business headquartered in Pittsburgh, P.A., provides veterans with data-driven guidance on which schools are doing the most to embrace them as students. The annual list, viewable at MilitaryFriendly.com, is based on extensive research using public data sources, input from student-veterans and responses to proprietary surveys. Institutions are rated on their ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, degree advancement, and loan default rates for all students, but specifically for student-veterans.
“Military Friendly® is committed to transparency and providing consistent, data-driven standards in our designation process. This creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages colleges to consistently evolve and invest in their programs," remarked Kayla Lopez, National Director of Military Partnerships, Military Friendly®. “Schools who achieve designation show true commitment and dedication in their efforts. Our standards assist schools by providing a benchmark that promotes positive educational outcomes, resources, and support services that better the educational landscape and provide opportunity for the military community."
RCSJ has long stood committed to the positive outcomes VIQTORY seeks for student-veterans in higher education. The College maintains a fully staffed Veterans Services Office on both campuses to provide guidance on programs, services, and resources available to veterans at RCSJ and how they can access their G.I. Bill benefits. The office also works to provide scholastic assistance through academic advising, encourage support and comradery through the Student Veterans Organization, and connect students with available resources within their local community.
“It is an honor to assist New Jersey veterans, who have served their country with such dedication and selflessness, as they now use their hard-earned educational benefits to pursue a degree," remarked RCSJ President, Frederick Keating, Ed.D. “For any veteran who is ready to expand and explore their career opportunities through higher education, RCSJ stands ready to support those who have sacrificed for us all."
