Asher College – Las Vegas earns Military Friendly School Silver Designation
Asher College – Las Vegas is honored to announce they have earned a 2023-2024 Military Friendly(R) School Silver designation. Asher is proud of its long history of individualized student support, and Asher prioritizes each student and believes in supporting the veteran community. Asher College is a career-training vocational school with additional locations in Sacramento, California and Dallas, Texas.
The Military Friendly School list is created annually by VIQTORY, a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB). VIQTORY, founded in 2001, connects the military community to civilian employment, educational and entrepreneurial opportunities through its G.I. Jobs and Military Friendly brands. VIQTORY and its brands are not a part of or endorsed by the U.S. Department of Defense or any government entity.
The Military Friendly School list is based on extensive research using public data sources for over 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans, and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly Schools survey from participating institutions. The survey is administered for free and is open to all post-secondary schools that wish to participate. This year, more than 1,800 schools participated in the survey, and 665 earned special awards for going above the standard.
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by VIQTORY with input from the Military Friendly Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with an assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence (degree advancement or transfer), and loan default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
VIQTORY’s National Director of Military Partnerships, Kayla Lopez said, “Military Friendly is committed to transparency and providing consistent data-driven standards in our designation process. Our standards provide a benchmark that promotes positive outcomes and support services that better the educational landscape and provide opportunity for the Military Community. This creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages colleges to evolve and invest in their programs consistently. Schools who achieve awards designation show true commitment in their efforts, going over and above that standard.”
The 2023-2024 Military Friendly Schools list will be published in the May and October issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.
