DETROIT, MI - The University of Detroit Mercy has been designated as a Military Friendly School in the 2021-22 Military Friendly list of colleges that support veterans and military personnel.

“Their life experiences provide us with unique perspectives and important voices in the classroom, which helps broaden the educational experience of all our students,” said Associate Vice President and University Registrar Diane Praet.

The Military Friendly Schools list, now in its eleventh year, sets the bar for higher education institutions to provide the greatest possibilities for veterans and their spouses. This distinguished list includes a complete reference for veterans and their families by utilizing data from federal agencies as well as unique survey results from participating organizations.

Institutions receiving the Military Friendly Institution accreditation were assessed using both public data sources and responses from a private survey administered by the school. More than 1,200 schools took part in the 2021-22 study, with 750 institutions throughout the country receiving the honor.

There are several available programs at Detroit Mercy for veterans such as Montgomery GI Bill, Post 9/11 GI Bill, Survivors and Dependents Educational Assistance Program Reserve Educational Assistance Program, and Vocational Rehabilitation – Veterans with Disabilities.
