Rowan College South Jersey (RCSJ) is proud to be named among VIQTORY’s G.I. Jobs Magazine list of top ten
Military Friendly® Schools for 2022-2023. Out of the 1,800 institutions
participating from across the nation, RCSJ ranked #3 within its category for
leading practices, outcomes and effective programs that benefit student-veterans.
VIQTORY, a veteran-owned business headquartered in
Pittsburgh, P.A., provides data-driven guidance on which schools are doing the
most to embrace veterans 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.
“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 provide support and guidance.”
RCSJ has long been
committed to the positive outcomes VIQTORY seeks for student-veterans in higher
education. The College maintains a fully staffed Office of Military Services on
both campuses to provide guidance on programs, services, and resources
available to military students 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 military-specific
campus organizations and events, and connect students with available resources
within their local community.
“Our military students are treated
like extended family from the moment they arrive, right up to their graduation.
RCSJ has a Student Veterans Association we sponsor, a veterans’ bookshelf,
priority registration and many other resources that create a Military Friendly®
culture to help these students succeed in their academic goals,” remarked John
Ryder, Director of Military Services at RCSJ. “I’m proud of our Military
Services team and we are honored to rank #3 in the
country within our category. We look forward to continuing to support our
