TROY, Mich., Sept. 9, 2021 — For the third consecutive year, Walsh College has been named a Gold-Level Veteran Friendly School, the highest distinction offered by the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency (MVAA). Each year, MVAA recognizes institutions demonstrating a commitment to serving and supporting student veterans and military-connected students, including students currently serving on active duty, in the National Coast Guard or U.S. Reserve, a dependent spouse or child or a surviving dependent of a deceased service member.
Gold-Level Military Friendly Schools are recognized for meeting at least six of the required criteria including a veteran-specific web presence and veteran-specific advising, resources and staff. Walsh also waives admission application fees for veterans, offers veteran-specific scholarships and extended payment due dates for GI Bill® users, has a dedicated space for veterans at its Troy location and provides veteran-focused career services.
