Not Friendly

Hundreds of institutions do not receive the designation because of things they can fix right now. Here is a break down of the most common reasons.

Countless institutions do not complete their survey. Make sure you submit the survey and if you want confirmation, send the Survey Team an email! Extensions will not be accepted under any circumstances. If you find yourself stuck on a section, just go to militaryfriendly.com/support and we will be happy to help.

One of the most important components of the Survey is meeting the metrical benchmarks. Many institutions fall short or do not even fill this sections out. An institution must meet 3/6 of the benchmarks below:

  • Graduation rate for all students or veteran students alone is 50% or higher

  • Loan default rate for all students or veteran students alone is 20% or lower
  • Job placement rate for all students or veteran students alone is 50% or higher
  • Transfer rate for all students or veteran students alone is 50% or higher

Federal Caution Flags are found via public databases. You can see if your institution is flagged on https://www.vets.gov/gi-bill-comparison-tool. If you do not believe that your institution should have these flags, contact the VA directly.
