Peru, Nebraska – Military Friendly, a division of Victory Media, has again named Peru State College as a Military Friendly School. This is Peru State’s sixth year to earn this recognition.

Military Friendly is a nationally recognized hallmark for success in education for veterans and active duty military. Military Friendly surveys veteran and active military students to measure their on-the-ground experience at participating schools.

Only 1273 of the 4000 or more colleges and universities nationwide met or surpassed the survey’s criteria to earn the Military Friendly distinction for 2017.

Peru State President Dan Hanson said, “I encourage members of the military and their families to experience first-hand the hallmarks of a Peru State education – personalized attention, relevant coursework and flexible programming.” adds about Peru State College, “With one of the most comprehensive credit transfer programs in the state and the opportunity to earn life experience credit, military members may be closer than they think to achieving a college degree at either the bachelor’s or master’s level.”

“Online and hybrid course work make it easy for military members to complete a degree anywhere in the world at their own pace; thus utilizing the financial benefits provided for service men and women by our country.”

Deann Bayne, Director of Student Records at Peru State College said, “Peru State College has a proud tradition of offering a convenient path to higher education for veterans, members of the military, their spouses and dependents.”

“Reasonable transfer of credit policies, credit for military training, life experience credit and affordable tuition make earning a degree at Peru State College a reality. We are honored to serve those who have served!”

Potential students are urged to visit or call (800) 742-4412 to learn more about what Peru State College can do to help them reach their potential.
