Posted: Wednesday, June 17, 2020
The University of Evansville has been ranked among the top 100 best colleges for veterans by College Consensus. The complete list of schools was published to the organization's website in April.
To establish the order of ranking, College Consensus used a method that combined ratings from internationally recognized publishers (publisher rating) as well as student reviews (student review rating). Both ratings were averaged to form a complete list of 100 public and private college institutions across the nation. To qualify for the report, a college had to be a Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges member, have a recognized student veteran organization, be a Yellow Ribbon Program participant, employ dedicated support contact for veterans, and offer credit for military training.
"Our student veterans are a valuable asset to our campus culture," said Dr. Tracey Y. Folden, assistant vice president for academic affairs. "Their unique work as prior Servicemembers enriches the academic experience for all UE students."
UE offers a variety of services to support incoming and current students, including academic advising, tutoring, and career development. The student club, UE VETS (Veterans Education Transition Support), serves students, families, and active service members across the globe as they transition to college life, coordinating events and activities to provide additional support.

"UE has been invaluable with the resources it provides for students with military backgrounds," said Jordan Wright, a disabled veteran and Class of 2023 student majoring in finance. "The University really makes every effort to set us up for success."
In 2019, UE was recognized by U.S. News & World Report as the fifth best college for veterans in the Midwest. The University has also been previously recognized by U.S. Veterans Magazine and Military Times as a top college for veterans.
College Consensus is an online organization that highlights the best college programs and degrees offered in traditional and online formats.
