AURORA, Colo., Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- American Sentinel University was recognized by Military Advanced Education & Transition (MAE&T) as a top school supporting the military community in its 2016 MAE&T Guide to Colleges & Universities. This distinction measures best practices in military and veteran volunteer education.
"American Sentinel is proud to support our military personnel by offering distance learning degrees and certificate programs that are relevant to our students' military and post-military careers, as well as impactful scholarships," says Mary Adams, President and Chief Academic Officer of American Sentinel University.
"Students find that their military background contributed to their success at the University and combined with our student support services, they make the most out of their educational experience to achieve their career goals. We are honored to earn The Military Advanced Education & Transition recognition. It serves as a symbol of our commitment to military students, and is the reward of their success."
MAE&T's 2016 Guide to Colleges & Universities showcases the results of a questionnaire of the military-supportive policies enacted at more than 600 institutions that were evaluated for their support of military culture, financial aid, flexibility, general support, on-campus support and online support services.
"While we recognize that all schools are unique, we focus our annual survey on the best practices that make a true difference to service members and student veterans," says Kelly Fodel, editor at Military Advanced Education & Transition.
More than fifteen percent of American Sentinel's enrollment is military students, and the university offers degree programs in some of the most in-demand, healthcare-focused career paths.
American Sentinel is uniquely suited to support the busy needs of active-duty service members, reservists, veterans, military spouses and their families with student support services that help students make the most of their higher education experience.
