UConn, University of New Haven make list of best colleges for veterans

WEST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – UConn and University of New Haven are among the best colleges in the United States for veterans, according to a new report.

Military Times ranked UConn #77 and University of New Haven #87 in its “Best for Vets: Colleges 2015” list. They were the only two schools in Connecticut to make the grade.

In order to be considered for the list, the military news website requires schools to document services, special rules, accommodations and financial incentives offered to military and veteran students and to describe veteran culture on a campus. It’s the most comprehensive school-by-school assessment of veteran and military students’ success rates.

“I am honored that Military Times has recognized the hard work of our military community at the University of New Haven,” said Sean-Michael Green, associate vice president for graduate enrollment and marketing at University of New Haven. “I view this as a good starting point to expand our services to veterans. We will continue to build on this foundation with the goal of serving as a premier institution for veterans and service members not just in the U.S. but around the world.”

The #1 4-year college on the list was University of Nebraska Obama. To view the full list, click here.
