Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- The University of Wisconsin-Superior is proud to announce that they have once again been named a Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs magazine.

According to the magazine, UWS ranks in the top 15% of all colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide in services offered to veterans.

“The University of Wisconsin-Superior helped Armed Forces Veterans leverage their life experiences to obtain the best educational advantage by helping them get connected, navigate the system, learn and succeed," says UW-Superior Chancellor Renée Wachter.

UWS spokespeople say their university provides a veterans benefits coordinator and office to help veterans understand their government education benefits and to arrange payment for their tuition and fees. The university also tries to maximize the number of military training and credits that veterans can transfer to UW-Superior to apply toward their university degrees.

G.I. Jobs is a private organization that surveys 7,000 schools nationwide about the services they provide to veterans and makes that information available through its magazine and website. To be named a Military Friendly School, a university is evaluated on such areas as flexibility in class scheduling and requirements, transferring academic credits, providing support for veterans, and academic accreditation.
