Wor-Wic earns military spouse friendly designation
For the sixth year in a row, Wor-Wic Community College was named a Military Spouse Friendly School by VIQTORY, a veteran-owned company whose mission is to assist military personnel transitioning to a civilian life. Earlier this year, Wor-Wic also received a top 10 recognition as an overall Military Friendly School.
“Wor-Wic understands the unique challenges that come with being a military spouse, and the often unsung contributions they make to our nation’s defense. We support our military spouses with the same exceptional resources that we provide to our veteran and active-duty military students. They receive the highest level of academic, financial and personal support from our dedicated veterans services staff, and this designation is a reflection of that,” said Jason M. King, director of veterans services at Wor-Wic.
Every year, hundreds of students from veterans, active-duty members, National Guard, reservists and their eligible family members – including spouses – are enrolled at Wor-Wic. The college has been named a Military Friendly School for the past 12 years.
Institutions earning the 2023-2024 Military Spouse Friendly School designation were evaluated using public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Methodology, criteria and weightings were determined by VIQTORY, the publisher of Military Spouse magazine, 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 the assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence and loan default rates for all students and specifically for student veterans.
“Schools who achieve awards designation show true commitment in their efforts, going over and above that standard,” said Kayla Lopez, national director of military partnerships for the Military Friendly organization.
