CUA Named to List of Best Colleges for Veterans
The Catholic University of America was ranked 24th nationally by U.S. News & World Report in its inaugural listing of the “Best Colleges for Veterans.”
Schools were ranked based on their assistance to veterans in pursuing a college education under the Post-9/11 GI Bill. The rankings provide data and information on schools that offer federal benefits, including tuition and housing assistance, to veterans and active service members. To qualify, schools had to be certified for the GI Bill and participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program and Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC) Consortium.
In total, there were 234 ranked schools across the United States. To see the rankings, click here.
In September, the University was named to the Military Friendly Schools list by Victory Media, a media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life. That list honored the top 20 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.
