Honor Marks 8 Continuous Years on Military Times Best for Vets List

Virginia Beach, VA – Each year, Military Times ranks the best colleges and universities for veterans and military service members, and for the second straight year, ECPI University has been ranked number one in the nation. Designated for excellence in the Career and Technical Colleges category, Military Times ranks schools based on the results of its annual survey, a comprehensive school-by-school assessment of veteran and military student services and rates of academic achievement. 

An editorially independent news project, Best Colleges 2019 evaluates the many variables that determine academic success among military and veteran students. Broadly speaking, Military Times states that institutions are evaluated in five categories: university culture, student support, academic policies, academic outcomes/quality, and cost and financial aid.  Other factors include:

  • Graduation Rate
  • Retention Rate
  • Accreditation
  • Enrollment
  • GI Bill Gap Coverage
  • Yellow Ribbon participant and approved to offer VA Benefits
  • Vet Center of Campus
  • TA Eligibility

Here’s what Military Times survey editors had to say about ECPI University: 

“Nearly one out of every seven staff members at ECPI is a veteran, giving the school one of the highest proportions of vet employees of any school considered for this year’s rankings. That can go a long way toward helping a school understand the needs of its student veteran population. And on top of that, the school conducts surveys of its student vets at least twice per year to gauge their satisfaction with the school and its services. ECPI also has special degree programs for troops and vets, in cybersecurity and electronics engineering that allow them to leverage their military training and experience to earn degrees quickly.”

“It’s an honor to be recognized for our commitment to skill-based education,” says ECPI University Executive Director of Military Education Bob Larned. “In today’s highly-technical job market, employers in such areas as computer and information science, engineering, and healthcare need people who can do the job with little or no training. That’s what ECPI University has been doing for more than half a century.”
