The Chicago School of Professional Psychology Earns Top 10 2020-2021 Military Friendly School Designation

Los Angeles, Feb. 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (TCSPP) is pleased to announce that it has earned the 2020-2021 Military Friendly® School designation, ranking in the Top 10 in the Graduate School category. 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 1,000 schools participated in the 2020-2021 survey with 695 earning the designation. The 2020-­2021 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at

“This designation means a lot to The Chicago School,” said TCSPP President Dr. Michele Nealon. “Our commitment to military members, veterans and their families is something we take pride in. We want to provide 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.” 

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.

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, a veteran and active military tuition rate, and a partnership with Illinois Connections for Families of the Fallen where families are helped to cope after a catastrophic loss.
