On November 11, 2013, Military Times announced its Best for Vets: Colleges 2014 rankings. Alliant International University is honored to be among the selected schools for the fourth consecutive year. 

A new emphasis was placed on academic rigor this year when conducting and scoring the fourth annual Best for Vets: Colleges survey, a 150-question analysis of a school’s complete offerings for veterans. More than a dozen different measures of academic success, quality and rigor were considered.

“Alliant International University prides itself on serving our veterans. As a veteran myself, I can relate to and understand the challenges they may face transitioning into higher education. Therefore, we provide personalized guidance and support through a centralized point of contact, a liberal transfer credit policy for military service and training, an orientation program specifically designed for military students, low student-faculty ratios, a Student Veterans Organizations (SVO), and participate in the Post 9/11 GI Bill’s Yellow Ribbon Program," said Director of Military and Veterans Affairs Tina Moncada. “I am honored to serve our military student population. My goal is to ease their transition and support their success.”

See the full list of nontraditional schools selected as Best for Vets, where Alliant ranks number four.

Best for Vets provides service men and women a gauge by which to judge whether a school or degree program will truly benefit them. The rankings factored in service member enrollment, percentage of tuition covered by the GI Bill, and availability of specific programs to help service members.

The extensive evaluation process also factored in statistics commonly used to track student success and academic quality, including student loan default rates, retention rates, graduation rates and student-faculty ratio.

The full rankings include 86 four-year schools, 20 online and nontraditional schools and 14 two-year schools. They will be published in the November issue of Military Times EDGE magazine.

In addition, the top 30 four-year schools, top 10 online and nontraditional schools, and top 10 two-year schools are compared in upcoming issues of Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times and Marine Corps Times on newsstands the week of Veterans Day.
