UNT Moves Up in the Rankings for Veteran Services

UNT Military Times 2019UNT was named to Military Times: Best for Vets: Colleges 2019 4-year Schools, coming in at number 17 in the country (up from 42 last year).

Military Times invited institutions of higher education across the U.S. to fill out a rigorous survey, numbering around 150 questions, about their operations involving current and former service members and their families.

To create the rankings, Military Times evaluated colleges’ survey responses based on what veterans said was important to them, as well as their our own editorial judgment. They also factored in data from the Veterans Affairs and Defense departments, as well as three Education Department sources: the IPEDS Data Center, College Scorecard data and the Cohort Default Rate Database. Broadly speaking, institutions were evaluated in five categories: university culture, academic outcomes/quality, student support, academic policies and cost and financial aid. While the value of each section was comparable, university culture was worth the most in the survey for all schools. Academic outcomes/quality were weighted second highest for four-year, two-year and online schools, and cost and financial aid was worth the least.
