ECPI University Ranked Best for Vets College
Educating a military or veteran student is a sacred responsibility--one for which ECPI University has long been committed. Every year, our efforts pay off as military and veteran students graduate and embark upon the next chapter in their lives. That alone is thanks enough. However, it is nice when others recognize our commitment to excellence.
Such is the case this year, as Military Times has once again recognized ECPI University as the number one school in the nation for military and veteran students.
What Sets ECPI University Apart from Other Colleges?
Practical Learning Mimics Military Training
At ECPI University, we try to accommodate some of the barriers veterans, active duty, and military families face and offer programs that align with their skill sets. Most notably, we offer a practical learning environment that closely resembles what they experienced in the military.
In selecting schools for its Best for Vets ranking, Military Times required colleges and universities across the nation to fill out a 120-question survey. Editors collected data from the Veteran Affairs Department, Defense Department, and three Education Department databases, detailing everything from veteran-related policies to average salaries after graduation.
The Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) has recognized our commitment to veterans. ECPI University was selected to join the VetSuccess on Campus, or VSOC, program, making it one of just 94 colleges and universities in the nation to be a part of this initiative.
“VetSuccess on Campus is an innovative approach to help Veterans in the often difficult transition from military service to academic life. Placing experienced VA counselors directly on college campuses strengthens VA’s partnership with institutions of higher learning and creates myriad opportunities to help Veterans succeed.”
Allison A. Hickey, VA’s Under Secretary for Benefits
