ASU honored as best school for veterans

February 11, 2019 · 1 min read · By ASU Online
In a 2016 survey by the Military Times Media Group, Arizona State University was identified among the top “Best for Vets” colleges. This honor reflects ASU’s commitment to helping veterans pursue high-quality education.

“Best for Vets” college

The “Best for Vets” survey is based on responses received, plus information gathered from the federal government. The mission is to discover how schools accommodate and serve those affiliated with the military. As the survey found, ASU excels in this arena.

ASU works with approximately 4,200 military-affiliated students to help them achieve their educational goals. This includes veterans, as well as any student serving as active duty, the National Guard or the reserves. It also extends to 1,000 military family members currently enrolled at ASU.

At ASU, veteran needs are prioritized. Military students can transfer credits from military courses in many cases. They’re given priority when registering for courses and access to scholarships to help smooth their transition. It’s ASU’s goal to ease the educational process and help military-affiliated students move directly into the courses they need to succeed.

The university erected the Pat Tillman Veterans Center to further this endeavor, offering counseling and support from staff that is dedicated to serving our military students. ASU’s efforts have similarly been distinguished by G.I. Jobs magazine, which has named ASU a “Military Friendly School” for seven years in a row.
