Walsh retains status as Military-Friendly® School


TROY, Mich., March 1, 2021 — Walsh has retained its status as a Military-Friendly® school for the 2021-2022 year by VIQTORY, a Pittsburgh-based, veteran-owned organization dedicated to connecting the military community to civilian opportunity. Schools were assessed based on their ability to meet threshold for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence and loan default rates for all students and specifically veteran students.

Walsh supports veteran students from application to graduation by waiving the application fee for veterans, offering veteran-specific scholarships, extending payment due dates for GI Bill® users, assisting with use of education benefits and providing lifetime career services. Walsh’s Troy location also has a dedicated space for veterans.

“Walsh’s Veteran Services walked me through every step of the application and registration process and ensured all VA paperwork was turned in promptly. To use an old military expression – Walsh Veteran Services is squared away!” said Dan Heaton, Master of Science in Marketing, 2021 Air Force & Navy veteran and current member of the Michigan Air National Guard.
