Western New England University Ranked Among the “Best Colleges for Veterans”
Posted December 9, 2013
Western New England University is one of the “Best Colleges for Veterans” according to new rankings released by U.S. News and World Report. Western New England is one of only three colleges and universities in Massachusetts and 234 nationwide to earn this distinction.
“We are honored to help further the education of America’s veterans, who have contributed so much to our country by their service,” said Anthony S. Caprio, University president. “I’m proud of the efforts of our faculty and staff to create a welcoming and supportive environment for a new generation of post-9/11 veterans. This commitment builds on the University’s rich history of providing educational experiences for students with a wide variety of life experiences.”
In a news release announcing the rankings, U.S. News says the list is designed to help veterans pursue a college education under the Post-9/11 GI Bill. “We developed these rankings to help them find a top-quality institution that also offers federal benefits that ease the burden of applying, paying for and completing a colleges degree,” said Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer for U.S. News.
All of the Best Colleges for Veterans scored well in terms of graduation rate, faculty resources, reputation, and other markers of academic quality in the 2014 edition of the U.S. News Best Colleges guide. To qualify for the new rankings, the schools had to be certified for the GI Bill and participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program and Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges Consortium.
More than 60 current Western New England University students receive some form of veterans’ benefits, a number that includes dependents. The University waives application fees and provides a veteran student liaison. Those students enrolling under the government’s Yellow Ribbon Program are able to attend Western New England tuition-free in most cases through a combination of government benefits and scholarship support from the University.
Prospective students with questions about degree offerings, transfer credits, and financial aid should contact the Western New England University Admissions Office at 413-782-1321 or email@example.com.
