King receives this honor for the third consecutive year

BRISTOL, TN – King College has been identified as a Military Friendly School for the third consecutive year by G.I. Jobs. The 2012 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members and veterans as students.

Schools receive the distinction based on their performance on a survey distributed by G.I. Jobs to first time student veterans in order to collect feedback into the student veteran experience at a particular institution. The survey was conducted at over 8,000 schools nationwide.

“The Military Friendly Schools list is the go-to resource for prospective student veterans searching for schools that provide the right overall experience,” said Michael Dakduk, executive director of the Student Veterans of America.

King College is a military friendly school that demonstrates its support for student veterans and active duty personnel by staffing a VA representative on campus to assist military service members and veterans through the collegiate experience. Additionally, King accepts qualifying credits from the military, “old” credits as well as credits from ITT, National and previously accredited closed colleges.

“We’re delighted to be counted among those colleges honored by G.I. Jobs,” said Micah Crews, associate vice president of enrollment management for King College. “Military students bring quality leadership skills to the classroom along with an exceptional set of experiences.”

“King works to provide a foundation of classical knowledge as well as a responsive educational atmosphere,” continued Crews. “We want our graduates to have the ability to draw lessons from history, effectively utilize new technologies, navigate evolving economic and political environments and succeed in a rapidly changing world. We know military students are particularly adept with their unique world perspective.”

Now, with the advent of online learning, King College is expanding its academic tradition into providing more alternative learning methods for busy professionals who want to earn a degree at their own convenience and pace.
