McNeese Receives "Top School" Military Designation

(November 11, 2016) McNeese State University has been selected as a “Top School” in the 2017 Military Advanced Education and Transition Guide to Colleges and Universities. In 2016 McNeese was also designated as a Military Friendly School by Victory Media and named a “Governor’s Military and Veteran Friendly Campus.”

The MAE&T Guide to Colleges and Universities is a comprehensive research tool that enables current military service members to compare and contrast schools to find the best match for their higher educational needs and interests. Schools are evaluated by their achievement in military culture, financial aid, flexibility, general support services, on-campus support and online support services.

“McNeese values the sacrifice and dedication of active duty service members, veterans and their dependents and we are proud of our close working relationship with Fort Polk and the Joint Readiness Training Center,” Candace Townsend, McNeese director of public relations and university events, said. 

As a military and veteran friendly campus, McNeese offers admissions policies, programs and services tailored to military and veteran students including a veterans affairs office, priority class scheduling, special orientation programs, a deployment/readmission policy and workshops tailored to address career opportunities, interviewing skills, resume writing and networking.
McNeese also maintains an office in the Fort Polk Education Center that is staffed daily from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. and offers on-site credit courses leading to baccalaureate and master’s degrees for active duty soldiers and dependents in special eight-week formats.
