The Ashland Promise expresses for Military-Connected students in the following ways:
Each and every military-connected student comes to Ashland University with specific, unique needs. Veterans bring a life experience that has been forged by serving, sometimes half a world away, while family members of a person serving in the military have been afforded a different lens on the world through their experience and sacrifice. Regardless of who you are walking in the gates of Ashland University, you need an experience that includes an Accent on the Individual, camaraderie with fellow military-connected students and a clear plan for your life beyond your military experience.
The Ashland Promise positions you to take that next step with confidence. We’ll work with you from day one to develop a personalized plan for your education and make sure it’s affordable by strategically creating a plan that leverages your GI bill to its maximum potential, filling in the gaps with our Yellow Ribbon program. We will connect you with life-changing mentors and immerse you in a diverse campus community filled with transformative experiences that’s meant to teach you how to think, not what to think. Finally, you can connect with fellow military-connected students at The Jack — a state-of-the-art facility dedicated exclusively to military-connected students so they thrive during their time here on campus. Your next step here at Ashland University will help stretch, grow and guide you to whatever your amazing future looks like after your time at Ashland.
Being an Ashland Eagle means a commitment well beyond graduation. We are deeply invested in your success beyond your time here and will make sure you have a job or acceptance to graduate school within one year of graduation. From your university application to job acceptance and beyond, you’re an Eagle for life, and that’s a bond that cannot be broken.
