University was once again designated as a "Best for Vets" school by Military
Times EDGE (MTE) magazine for the third year in a row. Ranked number
six among non-traditional colleges (defined as those which operate
across a network of small campuses), Alliant was also the only school in
California, among non-traditional schools, to be selected for the Military
Times "Best for Vets" 2013 College list.
Some 650 schools - more than ever before - participated in the 2013 Military
Times EDGE (MTE) survey. A total of 111 schools were ranked across
different categories: 4-year, 2-year and online and non-traditional.
School rankings were based on financial assistance, academic
flexibility, campus culture and support services that help veterans make
the transition from military to college life.
This "Best for Vets" award closely follows Alliant's recognitin on GI
Jobs Magazine's 2013
list of "Military Friendly Schools," representing the top fifteen
percent of undergraduate and graduate schools doing the most to embrace
America's military service members and veterans as students.
"What's most striking about Alliant's commitment to veteran and military
students is the welcoming and supportive environment created by our
staff, faculty and students," says Dr. Russ Newman, provost and vice
president for academic affairs. "Our Director of Military and Veteran
Affairs, Tina Moncada (USAF Veteran), clearly understands the unique
needs of these students and has worked hard to assure that others at the
University understand as well," he added.
