TROY, Mich., May 7, 2020 — Walsh has retained its status as a Gold-level Veteran-Friendly School by the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency (MVAA) for the 2019-2020 academic year. The MVAA’s Michigan Veteran-Friendly Schools Program highlights institutions committed to offering services and support to meet the needs of veterans or military-connected students.
Gold-level status is the MVAA’s highest distinction and recognizes schools meeting six or more of the required criteria including veteran-specific advising, resources and staff, a system to award credit based on prior military training or experience and a process for identifying current veteran students.
Walsh helps veterans transition from military service to a successful career by providing personalized service and a clear pathway to a degree. The application fee is waived and veterans have access to veteran-specific scholarships, licensed professional counselors on staff to assist during transition and extended payment due dates for GI Bill® users. Career Services advisors help translate military terms, experience and responsibilities into civilian business language for resumes and job interviews. Walsh also offers a designated space for veterans at its Troy location and a student veteran organization.
