Los Angeles, March 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (TCSPP) is pleased to announce that it has earned the 2021-2022 Military Friendly® School designation, with a gold standard of recognition. A Military Friendly® School designation recognizes The Chicago School’s commitment, effort and success in creating sustainable and meaningful benefit for the military community.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 1,200 schools participated in the 2021-2022 survey with 750 earning the designation. The 2021-2022 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine.
“We are thrilled at this designation,” said TCSPP President, Michele Nealon, Psy.D. “We are driven by our gratitude for our military members, veterans and their families. Our commitment is to continue providing veterans and active military members with a supportive, affordable educational experience, and do all we can to support them in their transition from military to civilian life.”
The Chicago School’s military initiatives include a partnership with National Military Family Association (NMFA) to offer potential scholarships exclusively to eligible NMFA military spouse members, and a veteran and active military tuition rate.

Methodology, criteria, and weightings for Military Friendly® School designation were determined by Victory with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for Student Retention, Graduation, Job Placement, Loan Repayment, Persistence (Degree Advancement or Transfer) and Loan Default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
