MARTIN, Tenn. – “Military Advanced Education” has selected the University of Tennessee at Martin as a Top School in its “2015 MAE Guide to Colleges and Universities.” The guide, now in its eighth year of publication, measures best practices in military and veteran education at more than 600 institutions nationwide.

The guide presents the results of a questionnaire of the military-supportive policies in place at private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year and two-year colleges of all types. This year institutions were evaluated on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, on-campus support and online support services available to military personnel.

“We believe the guide serves as an invaluable tool for both education services officers and transition officers when advising service members about their educational opportunities,” said Kely Fodel, MAE’s editor. “We used strict criteria to individually evaluate the submissions of respondents, and we had a record number of schools participating this year.”

The guide was published in the December issue of MAE, and is also available online in a searchable database format. “We want [service members] to make informed choices, so we are giving them access to all the survey questions and answers provided by the schools, as well as explanations about critical issues like activation and deployment policies, withdrawal policies, scholarship and financial aid information and important support information,” Fodel said.

“Military Advanced Education” serves education services officers and transition officers at every U.S. military installation, along with the service members they counsel. Published 10 times each year, MAE’s editorial coverage includes exclusive interviews with military executive leadership, educators and members of Congress. Article topics include best practices; career and transition spotlights; service member, school and program profiles; and periodic special reports. KMI Media Group, Inc. is the leading independent publisher of targeted information about military requirements, technologies and operations. Serving as a unique forum for senior military and Department of Defense leadership, KMI focuses on distinct and essential communities within the defense market.
