Also factored in is data from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense and Department of Education.Institutions are evaluated in five categories: university culture, student support, academic policies, academic outcomes/quality, and cost and financial aid.”
The Veterans Educational and Transitional Services Center, or VETS Center, provides a wide variety of services for veteran students and students who are active duty military.
Susan Williams the director of affiliated military and veteran services for ASU gave the following statement: “We are thrilled to be ranked No. 6 in the nation. It’s especially gratifying because this award truly cannot be bought. Rather, it reflects a collaborative effort from our university president and vice presidents throughout all levels of our campus. It is our greatest honor to ‘serve those who have served,’ and we always strive to do the best job possible.”
