SAN ANGELO, TX – Angelo State University has been named one of the nation’s best colleges for military and veteran students for the eighth straight year by the Military Times organization in its “Best for Vets: Colleges 2021” rankings.
The rankings are based on comprehensive school-by-school survey analysis of programs and services for veteran and military students and their families. Colleges, universities and trade schools throughout the U.S. took part in this year’s survey, with only 366 making the rankings list.
The Military Times survey asks schools to meticulously document a wide array of services, special policies, accommodations and financial incentives offered to students with military ties, as well as to describe many aspects of veteran culture on campus. 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
- Cost and financial aid
