Dordt College is named a Military Friendly School

September 27, 2012

G.I. Jobs magazine has named Dordt College to its list of Military Friendly Schools, putting the college in the top 15 percent of schools nationwide that deliver the best experience for military students.

One reason Dordt College received this honor is because of its participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program, a post-9/11 bill that provides qualified veterans or their dependents up to $17,500 toward tuition and fees to attend a private institution. “Dordt has elected to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program by providing a $2,000 grant to qualified veterans and their dependents,” said Dordt College Vice President of Business Affairs Arlan Nederhoff.

The college strives to make a Dordt education affordable and available to anyone who wants one. Ninety-eight percent of students attending Dordt receive financial aid, averaging $21,900 per student. On average, Dordt students graduate with $21,900 in debt, lower than many private colleges and lower than the state’s public universities.
