Military Times has ranked Quinnipiac University No. 1 in Connecticut and No. 3 in the country in its 2022 “Best for Vets: Colleges” rankings, which were published this week. View the rankings.
“Our student veterans and military dependents continue to embrace their college experience and maintain their diligence with our degree programs and high retention rates,” said Jason Burke, director of veteran and military affairs at Quinnipiac. “I am extremely proud of how hard our cadre focuses on their academics as well as participating in our many co-curricular and extra-curricular offerings.”
This year’s “Best for Vets: Colleges” survey includes responses from more than 300 schools that answered more than 70 questions on their services and programs specific to military students — whether active-duty, veteran or families and dependents of servicemembers.
Student success metrics, including completion, retention, persistence and GPA, are the most important factors in determining the relative ranking of schools on this year’s list, followed closely by the range of military-specific resources and the level of financial assistance they offer. Admissions and registration policies, human resources and assorted miscellaneous considerations also factor into the scoring rubric.
For more than a decade, Military Times’ “Best for Vets: Colleges” has been a top resource for veterans to help with their education decisions. The rankings now include an individual web page for each school, one that provides detailed information about their programs to help veterans make important decisions about their career planning and how to use the education benefits they earned through military service.
