On Veterans Day 2013, Military Times announced that Full Sail has once again been included in the publication’s annual Best for Vets: Colleges 2014 ranking. This marks the second year in a row that Full Sail University has received this honor.
According to a press statement released by Military Times:
The organization comprising Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times and Marine Corps Times placed a new emphasis on academic rigor this year when conducting and scoring the fourth annual Best for Vets: Colleges survey, a highly respected 150-question analysis of a school’s complete offerings for veterans.
Best for Vets provides service men and women a gauge by which to judge whether a school or degree program will truly benefit them. The rankings factored in service member enrollment, percentage of tuition covered by the GI Bill, and availability of specific programs to help service members.
The extensive evaluation process also factored in statistics commonly used to track student success and academic quality, including student loan default rates, retention rates, graduation rates and student-faculty ratio.
“As with all of the Best for Vets rankings, Best for Vets: Colleges is an editorially independent news project that evaluates the many factors that make an institution a good fit for military veterans,” said Amanda Miller, editor of Military Times EDGE.
“It is an honor and a privilege to once again be included on the Military Times Best for Vets: Colleges Ranking,” said Garry Jones, President of Full Sail University. “We are proud to share this announcement with our veteran student, staff, and alumni community.”
