What Does Military Friendly® Mean?
The Military Friendly® Company survey “investigates and identifies the organizations whose commitment to serving the military and veteran community is comprehensive in scope and meaningful in terms of actual outcomes and impact.” In short, the company is dedicated to supporting veterans – and encouraging other companies and schools to do so as well.
Military Friendly® schools are committed to helping our veterans create better outcomes in their school careers – and their lives. Setting a rigorous standard provides a positive reinforcement for organizations and schools across the country to invest in the lives of veterans. All in all, a Military Friendly® standard is good for veterans, good for organizations, and good for the country as a whole!

With the knowledge I’m receiving at South College, I know this dream is finding direction! The GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon program help make all this is possible. – Eric Lee Miller, Associate of Science in Business Administration
I considered dozens of schools with similar online programs, but South College was just so proactive and more helpful than the others. It was stress-free for me to enroll and get started. Also, being a military-friendly institution made it easier for me to use my Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits with the Yellow Ribbon Program. – Meghan Hosea, Master of Business Administration
