ATU Named 2021-22 Military Friendly School

Shelly Hall serves as coordinator of veteran services at Arkansas Tech University.

Arkansas Tech University has achieved the distinction of Military Friendly School for 2021-22 following compilation of data by ratings organization Viqtory Media.

Assessment by Viqtory Media includes analysis of public data sources and proprietary data obtained through an annual Military Friendly Schools survey that is offered to more than 8,800 institutions across the United States.

The final determination of Military Friendly status is made by combining the survey scores with an assessment of the institution’s performance in student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence (degree advancement or transfer) and loan default rates for all students, and specifically, for student veterans.

There are 747 Military Friendly schools on the 2021-22 list published by Viqtory Media. A complete list is available at
