Military Friendly named Lyon College as one of the nation's top Military Friendly® Schools.
According to Military Friendly, Lyon "codifies [its] commitment to military service-members and veterans through granting academic credit for learning acquired in the military in accordance with the Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services. Additionally, Lyon offers an Army ROTC program to provide students entering the military with a solid grounding in the liberal arts."
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 the 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.
